2016 and 2017:

  • In November, UNIBO carried out a presentation at an in-service training for early childhood educators (0-3 services) and preschool teachers (3-6 services), which was organised by Rimini province’s municipality of Misano Adriatico. The purpose was to connect the experimentation carried out in the Italian case study (D. D. Vignola) to continuity projects implemented in local preschool and school institutions and create opportunities for activating networks.
  • In August, UNIBO was in charge of the self-organised symposium within the international conference EECERA.The aim of the symposium was to disseminate preliminary findings of the project within the international ECEC research community (Europe and beyond –  attended by academics and practitioners from over 40 countries).
  • In April, a workshop for the visiting delegation GO!, which is an official state organisation responsible for preschool, primary and secondary school education in Flanders (Belgium) was held to promote our work through institutional research collaborations nationally and internationally: Presentation.
  • Several trainings for preschool and primary school teachers were organised by Bologna province’s municipalities with the purpose of connecting the experimentation carried out in the Italian case study (D.D. Vignola) to continuity projects implemented in local preschool and school institutions and create opportunities for activating networks.
