US Students &
Professors Study Groups

Study Groups are returning to the Loris Malaguzzi International Center Reggio Emilia, Italy


Practical International Experience

This U.S. Students and Professors study group is for graduate and undergraduate students and accompanying professors whose work with students at U.S. colleges and universities is influenced by the Reggio Emilia Approach. It fits well with short term faculty led study abroad programs and independent study, offering students practical international experience to support their corresponding academic coursework.

Students should be familiar with the history and fundamental principles of the Reggio Emilia Approach so that they have some contextual framework before being immersed in the actual experience. Opportunities for dialogue and

exchange among the group and with educators in Reggio Emilia will offer students many possibilities for gaining a deeper understanding of the history, challenges, strategies and accomplishments of the Municipal Infant Toddler Centers and Preschools.

Angela Ferrario, U.S. Liaison for Study Groups to Reggio Emilia since 1994, organizes the annual U.S. Students & Professors Study Group in collaboration with the International Office of Reggio Children. She works with participating professors to accommodate their group requirements and facilitates communication across the group prior to departure and while in Reggio Emilia.

Your support will help us advance the quality of every child's one childhood.

Together, we are empowering exceptional education.
