College Symposium

College Symposium - Fall 2018

September 21, 2018 - Save the date!
Location: TBD

The College Symposium is an initiative sponsored by the Southwest Ohio Association for the Education of Young Children. Participants are full-time and adjunct instructors at 2- and 4-year higher education institutions. We discuss engagement of students and how to improve networking among college faculty. Meeting with representatives of Southwest Ohio AEYC, the goal is to find ways college faculty and students might benefit from programs and services offered by the Southwest Ohio AEYC.

College Symposium meeting locations rotate based on volunteer hosts. Dates are determined by polling participants. Conference calling or Google Hangouts connections are available for those unable to travel to the meeting location.

The college symposium is a wonderful collaboration between teacher educators, community partners and advocacy groups, and the SWOAEYC board. I have felt invigorated, challenged, and supported after attending the meetings. My interactions with the symposium inspired me to attend the NAEYC Professional Institute, my first conference experience with NAEYC. This was a powerful experience that helped underscore my passion teacher education, and helped clarify in my mind the topic for my dissertation research.
