Professional Development Opportunities

Use at least 1 field experience hours for discussing opportunities with your classroom teacher.

Research six professional development opportunities for early childhood educators for your area of interest, and discuss these and other opportunities with your classroom teacher. Of those six professional development opportunities, three are to be for the Birth to Age 5/Pre-K environment and three are to be for the K to Age 8/Grade 3 setting.

In 250-500 words, create a table or chart for the six professional development opportunities. Include the following:

  1. Description of professional development opportunity – name, sponsor, location, and topic
  2. Application to the early childhood setting, teaching, and/or learning.
  3. Relationship to your area of interest.

While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using APA documentation guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

Document the hours and locations that you spend in the field on your Clinical Field Experience Verification Form.
