Minnesota Association for Family and Early Education (MNAFEE) presents:
Fall 2020 Virtual Professional Development Series:
From Crisis to Continuity: Adapting our programming to new realities
Through conversation and action, this professional development opportunity will strengthen educators’ capacities to deliver quality ECFE programming integrating technology. Together we’ll explore the issues central to our work: ensuring quality delivery of curriculum amidst new formats, ensuring equity so that we leave no learner behind, and building, maintaining and encouraging the relationships that are core to ECFE. Through virtual learning via video conferencing, small group discussion, collaborative document creation and engagement with a variety of interactive learning tools, educators from across the state will jointly identify pathways for successful teaching.
