Higher Education: A Closer Look--Part 2
Morgan, Gwen
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n190 p100-102 Nov-Dec 2009
In Part 1 of this article, the author described how the development of the early childhood workforce is affected by institutions of higher education (IHEs). In this follow-up article, she describes some promising practices in early childhood workforce development that create pathways for ECE professionals and the challenges these present to IHEs. Here she presents the idea that two bridges are being built: (1) A bridge that allows a participant to walk into a college course, carrying some of their past recorded coursework, training, and supervised experience; and (2) A bridge between the two- and four-year degrees. Both of these bridges are important. Both are essential to the capacity of IHEs to produce ECE graduates. [For Part 1, see EJ851014.]
