Congratulations to Robyn Brookshire, Director of the Early Learning Center for Research and Practice, for her cover story in Teaching Young Children, a magazine for preschool professionals. In the article, Brookshire touches on the importance of encouraging and supporting continuing education for teachers. She believes “teacher growth and learning should be fostered in individualized and responsive ways that support practice-based inquiry, critical thinking, and reflection.” Brookshire and her team practice this philosophy by offering a number of programs to support teachers. They organize study tours at the Early Learning Center, allowing groups of teachers to “participate in customized professional learning that suits the goals and needs of their programs.” Additionally, they host the annual Early Learning Institute, a pedagogical conference on nature-based practices that draws in professionals from the region and beyond. To learn more about these incredible programs, visit the Early Learning Center website and Remember to register for this year’s Early Learning Institute!
