Are you ready to manage early childhood systems integration? What are the tools and resources you will need to manage the change? Ryerson University's G. Raymond Chang School of Continuing Education, in partnership with the School of Early Childhood Studies, is pleased to introduce a new Module Series on Early Childhood Systems Renewal starting in Fall 2013.

Learning Outcomes

These modules will support directors and managers in understanding the change processes in relation to multi-system transformation. Participants will learn about:

•Principles and theories of system change and collaboration
•Leadership and communication strategies needed for system-wide transformation
•Creating a common vision that supports an integrated service system

Who Should Enroll

This series of modules aims to attract CEOs, Executive Directors, managers and those leading the change in organizations that represent intersectoral groups serving children and families in diverse communities (Aboriginal, education, child care, family support, health, early intervention, and Francophone). These modules will also be relevant to senior policy professionals at the provincial and municipal level who oversee child and family services.

Mode of Delivery

Each module will consist of a one-day, on-campus workshop along with selected pre-readings, which will be available to participants online prior to the workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in online discussions after each workshop.

Participants can choose to register in any or all of the modules based on their own interests and needs. You do not need to complete all three modules; however, our goal is to assist participants in strengthening their leadership capacity related to Early Childhood Systems Integration. Therefore, completing all three modules would provide the most thorough overview.
