- Have an Active Aspire Profile, hold the role of Director and provide professional development to your direct care employees.
Part 1 & 2
Participants will explore how the CBK is to be used as the foundation for professional preparation and development of New York’s early childhood workforce and how it fits into the broader scope of training protocols. The CBK can also provide a framework for supervisors and trainers to evaluate performance of individual staff and supports the planning of professional development to ensure that it is intentional and relevant to the strengths, interests and needs of each teacher. The workshop will include a review of materials; small group discussions; and hands-on, interactive activities to help trainers develop meaningful professional development opportunities.
Part 3 & 4
Participants will build upon the work completed in Part 1 & 2 of the series that focused on using the CBK as the foundation of professional preparation and development of New York’s early childhood workforce and training protocols. In Part 3 & 4, participants will identify areas of expertise to develop trainings, work dynamically within a small group to implement all the aspects of the training development process, and have an opportunity to engage in peer review of the trainings that were developed and presented.
Part 5 & 6
Building on parts 1-4, part 5 & 6 will dig deeper into the actual intentionality of planning a high quality professional development session that is responsive to participant needs and aligned to the CBK. Part 5 will involve unpacking and debriefing the choices, methods, priorities, and modifications that were used by the facilitator in the presentations of parts 1-4. Part 6 will provide participants the opportunity to engage in facilitator supported self-reflection and review of participants’ own previously developed and presented professional development session.
