The Practice Series: Now you have the job, what does being an ‘early childhood professional’ mean?
PRESENTED BY: PHILIP BUTLER
Often, much of the support and training for new educators focus on pedagogy and practices, frameworks and outcomes, tasks and timetables. In this webinar, we will look at another, perhaps not discussed as much, critical aspect of an educator’s role…our professionalism. What does it mean to be a professional educator? How do we enact our professionalism? What is the difference between chatting with someone and having a professional conversation? How can your professionalism support your practices and raise the quality of outcomes for all? Answering these questions is critical not only for your growth and continued development as an educator but also to the continued development of the early childhood sector.
