It’s been more than a month since AAEE’s first conference in over a decade and we have not stopped thinking about it! Your professional development committee and board of directors are hard at work sorting through the feedback to shape future professional gatherings and the general organization to meet the diverse needs of our state. At the same time, we’re still basking in all the love from the businesses and organizations that helped make the conference possible. We thought it a good time to give them another shout out and encourage our members and friends to give them some love in return.
So, read on to learn a little bit more about these supporters of EE!
Founded in 1966, Prescott College offers four-year undergraduate degrees, graduate degrees and Ph.D. programs utilizing an experiential, self-directed model that attracts students motivated to make a difference in the world.A significant partner for us during the conference was the Center for Nature and Place-Based Early Childhood Education which was established to support and expand training for early childhood educators, pre-service teachers, administrators, and program directors in developmentally appropriate nature and place-based pedagogy.
The Center focuses on designing innovative nature and place focused college course curricula for Prescott College students in the Early Childhood and Early Childhood Special Education undergraduate and graduate programs. It also offers residential professional development institutes and outreach workshops that provide training and experiential learning opportunities for early childhood educators across Arizona and beyond, including the Summer Institute for Nature and Place-Based Early Childhood Education.
The Center provides opportunities and support for student research on the effectiveness of nature and place-based early childhood teacher education and outdoor learning activities in order to add to current professional knowledge in the field. The center actively seeks opportunities to collaborate with other higher education institutions, schools, and organizations in implementing nature and place-based teacher training initiatives and related research projects.
