Event description
Becoming an Effective Early Childhood Professional Development Provider

About this Event

VCPD 101 is a train-the-trainer curriculum created by the Virginia Cross-Sector Professional Development (VCPD) Team to increase the skills of early childhood leaders who have content knowledge but little background in designing and delivering professional development. We explore:

 Interactive, participant-centered professional development strategies including ideas for openers, closers, refreshers, and rechargers that make learning active and fun

 How to design training so that participants gain new knowledge and skills and are able to implement what they learned in their work with children and families

 Strategies to maximize comfortable and active participation including room arrangement and strategies for efficient and effective small group work

 Instructional delivery techniques including ideas for using PowerPoint, newer technological tools, flip charts, and handouts

 Strategies to prevent and respond to challenging participants, technology failure, and other potential training disasters

You will leave with tons of new ideas to incorporate into your future professional development sessions. Whether you are teaching early childhood staff about developmentally appropriate practice, sharing behavior strategies with family members at a parent workshop, or planning to present at an upcoming conference, you will be a better prepared professional development provider.
