“Spotlights on Innovative Practices” is a series of webinars designed for state, territory, or tribal child care administrators, professional development (PD) leaders, and higher education faculty members who are involved in building PD systems at the state, territory, or tribal level and in higher education institutions. The content of the webinar series will focus on innovations related to state PD systems for early childhood education (ECE) professionals.

The first webinar in the 2017–2018 series introduces Relationship-Based Competencies for Professionals Who Work With Young Children in Group Settings, an updated publication from the National Center on Parent, Family, and Community Engagement. Relationship-based competencies (RBCs) describe the knowledge, skills, and practices that professionals who care for infants and young children in group settings need to support family engagement. RBCs can be used in state, territory, or tribal PD systems to ensure that the PD efforts offered in these systems prepare the ECE workforce to partner successfully with families. Please join us for a preview of the RBCs and an opportunity to provide input on the materials.

Topics for the December 19 webinar include the following:

·        Why family engagement is important

·        Overview of the 10 core RBCs

·        How ECE teachers and providers can—and already do—support family engagement

·        A chance to offer input on how we can tailor the content or dissemination plans to meet the needs of ECE professionals.

Who Should Take Part in This Series

PD system leaders; ECE teachers; ECE program directors; family child care providers; home visitors; technical assistance providers; coaches and mentors; higher education faculty members; and state, territory, or tribal child care administrators should participate in these webinars.
