Advocacy and Prof in ECE (ODE)
Students examine historical, political, professional, and social issues affecting early childhood administration practice in current Early Learning programs. Students review professional responsibilities and practices of ECE supervisors and administrators and analyze them within recognized best management practices. Students review strategies characterizing advocacy roles and responsibilities for ECE supervisors that reflect an in-depth understanding of early childhood education and ethical practices within the context of a self-regulated profession. Additionally, students develop strategies for personal and professional development growth in a management capacity. Through discussions, posting/presentations, case studies, readings, assignments, and practical applications, students have the opportunity to practice and utilize advocacy and professional skills including analysis and reflective practices.
Students registering for credit courses for the first time must declare a program at the point of registration. Declaring a program does not necessarily mean students must complete a program, individual courses may be taken for skill improvement and upgrading.OntarioLearn information
