In her research, Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw, professor of Early Childhood Studies and Coordinator of Early Years Specialization at University of Victoria’s School of Child and Youth Care, focuses on social justice, childcare, pedagogical narrations and early learning. Pedagogical narrations allow educators to use photos, video or transcriptions to record ordinary moments in children’s play and explore ways play impacts learning. Journeys: Reconceptualising Early Childhood Practices through Pedagogical Narration (University of Toronto Press Pub. $34.95) with Fikile Nxumalo, Laurie Kocher, Enid Elliot and Alejandra Sanchez, provides rationale for the need to reflect critically on early-years education and offers a framework for instructors to integrate pedagogical narration into their practice.
