This virtual eCourse not only shares pedagogical theory about Diving Into Documentation: Nurturing Your Journey Alongside Children, it also shares practical and actionable steps to bringing this critical practice to life in your space alongside children.

It shares inspiring stories, pedagogical documentation from the field, and meaningful reflections about the value and importance of making children’s thinking come to life through pedagogical documentation.

With its universal appeal, many people tell us that Diving Into Documentation: Nurturing Your Journey Alongside Children aligns beautifully with their own beliefs and philosophy of pedagogical documentation, building relationships, uncovering, honouring, and celebrating the ideas, thinking, and voices of children.

We hope it inspires you to continue to share your nourishing gifts with children each and every day.

Educational Thought Leader

Founder, Nurtured Inspirations

Susan Wright

For over 32 years, Susan Wright has shared a passion with educators and parents who guide, nurture, and inspire children. Working collaboratively with children, she works alongside educators and parents to make visible children’s thinking as a way to honour each child’s human experience and unique ways of being. As a teacher, researcher, author, and pedagogical leader, Susan brings a fresh perspective to education through the relationships she builds with educators and parents. As the Founder of the newest collective in education, Susan created Nurtured Inspirations as a way to connect globally with individuals and teams of educators and parents looking to share together as intellectual partners building learning relationships alongside children. Susan travels internationally and collaborates virtually with those wishing to build lasting learning partnerships that share in rich educational endeavours. Susan has visited schools in Canada, the United States, and Italy to study children’s thinking and learning, and to engage in pedagogical dialogue around educator practise.
