Professor E. Jayne White has spent most of her life working with Te Whariki - as a ECE teacher and scholar in Aoteaora NZ. As President of AVP, https://visualpedagogies.com/about-us/, Co-Editor of the Video Journal of Education and Pedagogy https://brill.com/view/journals/vjep/vjep-overview.xml and Editor of Brills new book series, Jayne’s life-long interest is in the infinite promise of video in education in revisioning pedagogies and associated philosophies - particularly those surrounding infants and toddlers. With Prof Carmen Dalli she co-edits a second book series with Springer https://www.springer.com/series/13629- one of which seeks to promote scholarship surrounding policy, pedagogy and practice of learners in their first years of life. Jayne’s research focuses on the complex creative processes and practices of meaning-making as a source of insight, with a strong emphasis on dialogic pedagogy and the work of the eye/I as a methodological imperative. Her lingering interest in the relationship between representation in art and life orients her scholarship accordingly. She has recently completed a project workigtn with teachers to understand their pedagogical dialogues https://www.waikato.ac.nz/age-responsive/
In her current role as Professorial Lead of RMITs 'Pedagogies of Possibility' Lab (PoPLab) she sets forth an agenda to promote these ideas across all aspects of the life span and disciplines.
