Analyzing and Improving Program Spaces – Online Workshop

September 30th – October 20th, 2021

This workshop is equivalent to nine (9) hours of professional development.
What participants say about this workshop:

“The pace is perfect for me. It is the best way to learn as I can use my time effectively and access the materials as many times as I need it.”

“Hearing from the professionals as well as seeing different children’s play experiences from all over the world was great to see and take in.”

“Being able to flex it around my schedule was fantastic and so important as I have very little free time.”




Analyzing and Improving Program Spaces (3 weeks)

This action-oriented workshop describes a variety of approaches to curriculum and issues related to indoor and outdoor program spaces.

Participants will:

  • Document and analyze aspects of their own program settings that are
    successful (through photos and other means)
  • Describe and document an area to modify and improve
  • Share information to get input and inspiration from others for enhancements
  • Implement and evaluate their proposed changes



In the Science of Early Childhood Development (SECD) professional development workshops, participants access multimedia content and “meet” each other in online discussion groups, over the course of 2 – 3 weeks. During the workshop period, participants choose the times and locations most suitable for them. There are weekly expectations to work through the engaging, interactive material – making it convenient, flexible, and ideal for people who cannot attend a face-to-face session for a wide variety of reasons. A facilitator oversees each workshop by welcoming, orienting, and guiding participants. Participants explore websites; do short readings; watch videos of experts, children, and programs; and play interactive review games. Ultimately, by exploring the engaging content and then sharing ideas and reflecting with other participants in the online learning community participants can enhance their work with children and families.

Please note: Participants should have a reliable internet connection and be comfortable reading and writing in English.
