Professional Development

We offer online and in-person professional development opportunities to support professionals in all disciplines who touch the lives of young children. By strengthening their knowledge and skills, we prepare them to better serve young children and their families.

All of our courses and trainings draw on current research and aim to build upon theoretical foundations and critical skills. Many of our professional development opportunities include an emphasis on reflective practice and encourage participants to explore their prior learning, assumptions, and beliefs.

As a member of the University of Minnesota community, we participate in discovering, creating, sharing, and applying principles of multiculturalism and scholarship to advance teaching and learning.
