Access to quality child care is essential for working parents. Early care and education settings — including homes, child care centers and out-of-school programs — help Nebraska communities thrive by contributing to a strong workforce, while also providing children with safe and nurturing environments that foster their learning and development.
Research teams from four universities gathered May 4 and 5 at the Nebraska Union to discuss expanding knowledge and support of Early Head Start and other early care and education programs.
During the two-day Early Head Start University Research Partnership Data Camp, researchers collaborated in-person and virtually on a variety of topics, including parent-teacher relationships, infant/toddler well-being in Early Head Start center-based care and provider professional development.
Catherine Garcia, assistant professor of human development and family science at Syracuse University, led the final presentation of the Spring 2022 Methodology Applications Series May 6.
Video is now available of Garcia’s virtual presentation, “Considering Diversity and Intersectionality within Latina/o/x Aging and Health.”
Creating connections among early childhood research, practice and policy — and how each can enhance the lives of young children and their families — provided the central theme of the 2022 CYFS Summit on Research in Early Childhood.
Nearly 200 attendees, including researchers from across the University of Nebraska system, practitioners, administrators, community partners and policymakers, gathered April 13 at Nebraska Innovation Campus for the daylong, sixth biennial summit, which highlighted the latest research to advance early childhood education and development, and implications for practice and policy.
Keyonna King, assistant professor in the Department of Health Promotion, Social & Behavioral Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, led the first presentation of the Spring 2022 Methodology Applications Series April 15.
Video is now available of King’s virtual presentation, “Leveraging Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) to Enhance Design, Innovation and Cultural Appropriateness.”
Jessica DeCuir-Gunby, head of the Department of Teacher Education and Learning Sciences at North Carolina State University, led the Spring 2022 Nebraska Methodology Workshop Series April 7 and 8.
The two-day event was presented by the Nebraska Academy for Methodology, Analytics and Psychometrics.
The usefulness of Microsoft Teams, the main collaborative tool in the Microsoft Office 365 suite, was the topic of the Feb. 10 NAECR Knowledge event.
About two-dozen early childhood researchers attended the virtual discussion to explore the most efficient, effective ways to use Teams, a collaboration app that helps groups stay organized and have conversations from any device. The tool enables users to launch instant conversations, make phone calls, host meetings and share files.
