The Pyramid Model Higher Education Institute is a two-day seminar featuring strategies for incorporating information from the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) Pyramid Model into existing ECE coursework for children birth to six. This special event will provide full-time and adjunct ECE faculty, from both two and four-year institutions of higher education, with materials, sample syllabi, resources, and practices that will enable sharing of the evidence-based CSEFEL Pyramid Model Framework with students. Breakout sessions will include: promoting relationships and positive environments; teaching social skills; and developing Positive Behavior Support Plans for individual children. The institute will also feature presentations from ECE programs currently implementing the Pyramid Model in Massachusetts.
The 2012 Pyramid Model Higher Education Institute presenters will include national CSEFEL higher education Trainers:
- Rosa Milagros Santos Gilbertz, Ph.D., University of Illinois
- Susan Maude, Ph.D., Iowa State University
- Sharon Doubet, Ph.D., Illinois State University
