WORKSHOP

Why Brain Development Matters

November 18th – December 1st, 2021

Overview

The Association of Early Childhood Educators of Nova Scotia and Red River College have partnered to offer this online workshop. The workshop content (videos, readings, links, games, discussions) is completely online and available to participants for the duration of the workshop. There are weekly expectations and participants have complete flexibility to work through the materials at times of the day that are most convenient for them. The content is from the Science of Early Child Development (SECD). SECD’s engaging, multimedia resources are used around the world by people who want to learn more about the impact of the early years on lifelong health and well-being.

Participants will watch videos of children around the world, hear from experts discussing the topics, do short readings and play interactive review games. Participants will also “meet” in online discussions guided by a facilitator, to hear each other’s ideas, and reflect on and apply what they learn.

Topics include:

  • Basic brain growth and sensitive periods in brain development
  • How genes and experiences interact and influence development
  • How the brain is affected by stress and adversity
  • What caregivers can do to support healthy brain development

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