COURSES
Neurobiological Perspectives on Developmental Education - online
  • Sept. 11-Nov. 13, 2020
  • Cost: $450 (no academic credit)
This course explores the theoretical and empirical research base supporting developmental educational approaches. Beginning with a survey of key theorists – Piaget, Vygotsky, Pestalozzi, Montessori, and Dewey-- students consider the practical implications of key concepts such as critical/sensitive periods, scaffolding, and constructivism.  Grounded in classroom-based observation and analysis, students also review recent research on topics including executive functions, social and emotional development, and embodied cognition.
Early Intervention, Special Education, and Family Engagement - online
  • Nov. 18, 2020-Feb. 26, 2021
  • Cost: $450 (no academic credit)
Family engagement is, increasingly, recognized as crucial for student success regardless of class or culture. Likewise, efforts to resolve developmental and learning challenges are enhanced when school and home work together.  This course takes a systems view of student support and family engagement, with a strong emphasis on asset-based models of support, community-building, and intervention. Using the Case Method, students will draw from their direct experiences with children and families to explore practice-based problems and solutions designed to address the needs of all children by explicitly linking children’s needs with family capacities.
Advanced Seminar on Language & Literacy - online
  • Mar. 1-May 21, 2021
  • Cost: $450 (no academic credit)
This course helps students understand the contexts in which children develop language, obstacles to optimal development, and the inextricable nature of language and culture, with an opportunity to apply their learning and create practice-based solutions to meet the language needs of all children.
