Early Childhood Education “Residency” Enhances Student Learning
SUNY Empire State College early childhood education students took advantage of an opportunity to participate in a hands-on learning residency experience at The Strong National Museum of Play, in Rochester, N.Y. This year, Ceceile Minott, a program officer at the University of the West Indies Open Campus Consortium for Social Development and Research, traveled to Rochester to participate in the event. The collaboration with SUNY Empire faculty and Minott includes the development of an early childhood education course for the SUNY Center for Collaborative Online International Learning (SUNY COIL).
