AECEO York Branch Professional Book Club

Friday, October 17th, 2014

READ, REFLECT AND REVIEWTutoring-Books-Sylvan-Learning

We are excited to announce the upcoming launch (October 23, 2014) of the AECEO York Branch Professional Book Club. This initiative offers AECEO members yet another accessible option for ongoing professional learning.

A Professional Book Club is not only an excellent opportunity for members to read and discuss quality books that will enhance their professional knowledge and practice, it is also a means of taking part in “planned professional discussions with colleagues” consistent with the Learning Opportunities outlined in the College of Early Childhood Educator’s Continuous Professional Learning program.

Participants will register to attend monthly two-hour sessions hosted and facilitated by York Branch member, Monica Bissett, AECEO.C, to discuss the designated book, consider strategies they can try in their classroom, and share and reflect on their experiences within a community of learners. Monica will guide the discussions and provide group activities to reflect on the core principles of the designated book. We hope to provide an atmosphere where ideas are encouraged that can be applied to our professional lives.

Books will be chosen by the AECEO Professional Learning Advisory Committee based on recommendations from book club members.  After each session, discussion notes will be posted to an online forum for participants who are not able to attend in-person.

Continuous Professional Learning Feedback – CECE

Friday, May 17th, 2013
The College of Early Childhood Educators is developing a Continuous Professional Learning (CPL) program that will make ongoing education an important part of being a registered early childhood educator (RECE).Continuous professional learning enhances the practice of early childhood education. Engaging in continuous learning helps RECEs remain current in their knowledge, skills and professional values. It also promotes public trust in College members and the profession.

The CPL program will support RECEs by allowing them to reflect on their practice and to identify ways in which they can grow professionally. The program will be accessible to all RECEs, regardless of different learning styles, geographic locations, career stages and career ambitions. 

The College has provided a CPL draft design for this learning and is asking for participant feedback by June 7, 2013 (see below).
