Education doesn’t just start when a child enters Kindergarten. There are a variety of educational opportunities available to parents and caregivers even before “official” schooling starts. Educators of all sorts are developing their practice and striving to ensure that children make the most of these options available.

In this week’s episode, Dave speaks to Dr. Mari Pighini, Graduate Advisor to two current and one upcoming Master of Education programs in Early Childhood Education. Mari talks about what the Master’s degree can do for students who take it as well as discussing how the field of Early Childhood Education has changed in the many years she’s been involved in it.  They also chat about the new ECO3 online MED cohort which is currently taking applications, as well as the two cohorts that have just started.

In addition to Mari, Fiona and Dave talk about their Art Education experiences, both formal and informal, including a rather unique and colorful example.

Big changes are in store for the entity formerly known as External Programs & Learning Technologies. We’re changing our name and adjusting our role in the Faculty of Education to meet the faculty’s strategic plan and goals. We are now Professional Development & Community Engagement (PDCE).

In this week’s episode, the faculty’s new Assistant Dean, Dr. Mark Edwards, explains what changes are in store for our unit, enhancing our engagement with communities local, provincial, and even global. We will be offering the same great service we always have, but now even more so. Mark  also talks about his new role as Assistant Dean (he was formerly Director of EPLT) and how that will facilitate all of these changes. Great things are in store for the unit, so take a listen and see just how you can be part of this new direction.

In addition to the interview, your hosts talk about the recently completed Paralympic Games, as well as educational games. Just how can Angry Birds be a metaphor for learning methods? We’ve got you covered.
