“Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.” --John Cotton Dana
The EarlyEdU team is excited to welcome a new academic year! We are ready with tools and resources to assist our members with online and in-person learning. Learn how EarlyEdU can support your practice and professional development.
Alliance faculty are invited to join the EarlyEdU Faculty Community of Practice to share innovations and ideas, grapple with challenges, and learn from and offer support to experienced colleagues of the early childhood education workforce. The Faculty Community of Practice meets live approximately nine times a year for a facilitated discussion of pertinent topics such as online teaching, formative feedback, and collaborative learning. Faculty are encouraged to continue conversations and exchange information on our Slack channel. For more information on joining the Faculty Community of Practice, log into the members portal or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
