Third Annual EarlyEdU Institute Held in Seattle

The EarlyEdU Alliance®, led by University of Washington faculty PI Gail Joseph and CO-PI Susan Sandall, hosted its third annual Institute in Renton, WA May 21, where over 135 early childhood faculty and representatives from state agencies across the country gathered to share ideas, hear from experts in the field, and plan for using Alliance resources to strengthen the early childhood workforce in their states. Keynote speakers included Gail Joseph, and Sharon Yandian, Co-Director of Comprehensive Services and TTA, Office of Early Childhood Development, and the Office of Head Start. Alliance members and the EarlyEdU team presented sessions on.

In addition to showcasing new features and tools such as the Coaching Companion and the EarlyEdU Media Library, workshop sessions explored instructional innovations, using video to see and deep reviews of new courses. The institute also featured a "deep dive" with successful partners, like the Utah Education and Telehealth Network, that have taken on a number of courses and successfully launched their own programs to provide greater access to early learning courses in higher education.

Alliance members can access Institute materials on the EarlyEdU members site.
