This Toronto Conference will address the importance of professionalizing the field as a means of helping ECEs take on the rapidly changing landscape. The workshops and full-day institutes all have this common thread running through them. The ECE professional will take away lessons on the value of pedagogical leadership, self-regulation, bridging ECE skills, building resources, and most importantly the confidence to manage their own career.
Day One will offer two all-day institutes. The first institute will take a look at Ontario's new early learning framework both from a theoretical and a practical perspective. The second institute will offer valuable resources and tools to assist professionals in their career objectives
Day Two will offer workshops focusing on Training, Employment, Professionalization, Policy/Research, and Leadership and Team building.
We have gathered a strong and knowledgeable team of experts from the early learning, human resources, and training sector, to name just a few, to bring you the most current information and practices available. These resources and tools will give you the road map you need to make important decisions around next steps in your career.
