The Documentation Studio Archive provides free online access to documentation, supporting reflection and dialogue on how we teach and learn.  Prepared by educators, the online archive houses 400+ digital resources capturing the learning experience.

Archiving the Documentation Studio Collection


The Documentation Studio was founded in 2008 by Wheelock faculty member, Stephanie Cox Suarez. Inspired by Reggio Emilia's foundational practice of documentation, the Documentation Studio has been a hub for educators to learn, create, and share documentation. Through collaborations with educators and faculty from institutions of higher learning, the studio is a space where people gather, reflect, and engage in dialogue to improve the quality of teaching and learning. In the summer of 2020, we embarked on a project to digitize the collection and make the materials accessible online. Working with our archivist, Sarah Yasuda, we digitized over 400 pieces of documentation including mixed media ranging from panels and documents to videos and photographs. By archiving these crucial resources from the Documentation Studio, educators and learners can continue to share with and learn from each other.
