ISCAR 2017 - Precongress workshop - CHACDOC (August 28th)

Organisers: Mariane Hedegaard and Marilyn Fleer


We are hosting a one day pre-conference event to be part of the ISCAR Congress 2017 activities in Quebec. The program will involve presentations of papers, panel forum and discussions.

The purpose of CHACDOC is to create a forum for researchers interested in cultural-historical and activity theories as a way to unite developmental psychology and childhood research.

This pre-conference activity is available to all those who register at the Congress. Register your interest at the time of registering for the Congress.

The focus of the symposium is the relations between play, learning and creativity. Each presenter will discuss how this contributes to children’s development in the context of practice and research.
