Revolutionizing Early Childhood Teaching

webinar graphic

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

This webinar features Bob Pianta, one of the most influential researchers in the country, responsible for changing how the early childhood field thinks about teaching. His work homes in on what it takes to be a good teacher, the interaction between young learners and their teacher, provides strategies for teachers, and an assessment tool to measure the quality of teaching. Adele Robinson from NAEYC discusses policy trends and highlights in teacher training. The webinar includes presentations and comments by both speakers followed by a lively question, answer and comment portion of the webinar.
