More Information and Resources
We had a number of presentations across the 2020 conference including a panel of authors of our new publication, an ECTE Symposium, our annual meeting, and the newly added Sippin' SIGs. We welcomed newcomers, Cerissa and Alan to our group.
We extend a huge thank you to Jill for her years of service as Co-Chair. She will pass the baton and move on to new challenges. Jill's commitment to the ECTE SIG is greatly appreciated and her leadership has served as an example for us. Laurel will be joining Billi as co-chair and Louise Ammentorp from The College of New Jersey has kindly agreed to be Secretary.
Thanks to everyone for sharing ideas to increase engagement throughout the year as a SIG. Some new ideas were generated at the meeting this year. We will be holding collaborative video conference (Zoom) meetings on topics of special interest to members as a way to maintain the collaboration that is present at the annual ATE conference each year. Christophe Meidl will be hosting our first topic, Men in the Field of Early Care and Education in June. Watch here for details about that and other Zoom sessions. Please feel welcome to share your Zoom meeting topics in the Forum and we invite all members to consider leading a Zoom meeting on their special interest topic.
We brainstormed ideas for next year's theme for our ECTE SIG Symposium and are looking at Social-Emotional Learning. Please share your specific Symposium topics in the Forum as well. We will be sending out a call for specific Symposium presentations in the coming months.
