Learn about PID’s journey to shift PD to virtual offerings and the purposes for modifications made to meet learners where they were physically and in their readiness to engage with the content. Dig into the four essential beliefs and how they were (and still are) practiced in the virtual training space. Discuss learner feedback and observations, as well as lessons learned. Reflect on the relationship between early childhood professionals and adult educators looking closely at power dynamics and incorporating these four beliefs. Consider how the beliefs and lessons learned relate to and could inform your own practice.

Participants will be able to:

  1. identify four beliefs about adult teaching and learning that guide PID’s curriculum development and delivery
  2. recall strategies for applying adult teaching and learning beliefs in a virtual training space
  3. describe power dynamics that may occur in adult learning environments
