2022 Virtual Trainings for Professional Development Providers

New York State Core Body of Knowledge – 6-Day Series

Examine the beliefs, content, and organization of the Core Body of Knowledge (CBK) developed by New York Works for Children and how it relates to professional development. Series must be taken in chronological order.

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.

No additional sessions for 2022

Participants will reflect on ways to inform and empower the early childhood workforce in utilizing the Core Body of Knowledge—through the lens of anti-bias education (ABE)—as the resource used to shift the current culture of professional development in New York State to one that is in greater alignment with both the NAEYC Principles for Effective Professional Development and the NAEYC Position Statement on Advancing Equity in Early Childhood Education.  In addition to deepening their knowledge and lens of anti-bias education, participants will examine the ethical dilemmas providers of professional development are presented as well as how to guide the early childhood workforce through ethical dilemmas using the NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct and supplements for both Early Childhood Program Administrators and Early Childhood Adult Educators.

No additional sessions for 2022

Participants will identify areas of expertise to develop trainings, support coaching, and work dynamically within a small group to examine, practice and implement all the aspects of the professional development process.
