New York State Core Body of Knowledge Professional Development Series — 2020 Dates Coming Soon

This series examines the beliefs, content and organization of the Core Body of Knowledge (CBK) developed by New York Works for Children (NYWFC) and how it relates to professional development.

Session Descriptions

Introductory Course: Part 1 & 2

Participants will explore how the CBK is to be used as the foundation for professional preparation and development of New York’s early childhood workforce and how it fits into the broader scope of training and coaching protocols. The CBK can also provide a framework for supervisors and trainers to evaluate performance of individual staff and supports the planning of professional development to ensure that it is intentional and relevant to the strengths, interests and needs of each teacher. The workshop will include a review of materials; small group discussions; and hands-on, interactive activities to help trainers develop meaningful professional development opportunities.

Trainer Institute: Part 3 & 4

This is Part 3 and 4 of a six part series for current and aspiring NYS T-TAP Professional  Development Specialists.  Participants will build upon the work completed in the introductory course (Parts 1 and 2) of the series that focused on using the CBK as the foundation of professional preparation and development of New York’s early childhood workforce and training protocols.

In Parts 3 and 4, participants will identify areas of expertise to develop trainings, work dynamically within a small group to implement all the aspects of the training development process, and have an opportunity to engage in peer review of the trainings that were developed and presented.

Trainer Institute: Part 5 & 6

Building on the initial 4-day Trainer’s Institute, days 5 and 6 will dig deeper into the actual intentionality of planning a high-quality professional development session that is responsive to participant needs and aligned to the NYS CBK. Day 5 will involve unpacking and debriefing the choices, methods, priorities, and modifications that were used by the facilitators in the presentation of Days 1 – 4. Day 6 will provide participants the opportunity to engage in facilitator supported peer review of participants’ own previously developed and presented professional development session.

This session has 12 hours of Adult Learning and Theory content.
