Education Forum Event Welcomes UNC Guest Speaker

The Department of Teacher Education and Human Services will host this semester’s Education Forum at 2 p.m. Thursday, April 4 featuring Camille Catlett from the University of North Carolina’s Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute. The event, entitled “Making the Magic 8 Work for Each and Every Child and Family,” will be held in the Veterans Hall Event Center, Room 201.

Catlett’s research efforts have focused on developing, implementing and evaluating models for preparing personnel to work with young children who are culturally, linguistically and ability diverse and models for collaborative, cross-sector professional development. One project with early childhood programs in institutions of higher education led to a model for enhancement and change that has been replicated in 10 states.

All are welcome.
