Thinking Curiously: Critical Theories and Te Whāriki

Gunn is Associate Dean (Teacher Education) & Associate Professor at the University of Otago College of Education. She has been at the University of Otago College of Education since 2011 where she teaches and researches early childhood education, inclusive education, teacher education, and assessment. While her teaching home is early childhood education, Gunn has worked for almost 30 years within and across the education system, curious about teachers’ beliefs and practices, and how teacher actions come to reflect and (re)produce certain norms.

This talk was a part of Growing from Strong Foundations in Auckland on 5, June, 2018 for more information and resources check out the video here.
