Professional Development Training
Childhood Education Professional Development Series
Time is always in short supply for both early care and education providers and administrators. The LSU Early Childhood Education Institute seeks to be a resource for both providers and administrators through the development of targeted trainings that meet state requirements that translate research-to-practice, are time efficient, accessible and on-demand.
As the LSU Early Childhood Education Laboratory Preschool is a living, learning laboratory, we have first hand knowledge of both the issues faced by early care providers and administrators and the accompanying time constraints. Our focused trainings address both recommended practices in the field of early care and education in a format that is accessible to working providers.
All trainings will adhere to continuing education topics, as specified in Louisiana Bulletin 137: Each training provides 2.0 Pathways clock hours: 60 minutes of training coupled with independent activities associated to the training topic. Pathways clock hours granted upon successful completion of post-training assessment.
Trainings take place virtually on Tuesdays at 12:00 - 1:00 PM (Central Time Zone).
The topics and sessions vary by Infant/Toddler Trainings and Preschool Trainings. You may designate your preference at time of registration.
