With our partners, we have also developed the Maryland Family Engagement Early Childhood Provider module. This online professional development module is based on the Maryland Family Engagement Coalition's Early Childhood Engagement Framework: Maryland's Vision for Engaging Families with Young Children. This self-paced online module orients providers through the process of moving from family involvement to family engagement. The module is divided into nine lessons; each will take between 15-20 minutes to complete and includes helpful resources for providers to obtain more information about each topic, as well as participate in a pre- and post-assessment. At the successful completion of the module, providers will receive a certificate for 2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). The provider module is available in English:
and Spanish: https://theinstitute.umaryland.edu/onlineTraining/programCategory.cfm?ottype_id=39
As an incentive, the first 35 providers who successfully complete the online provider module will receive professional development books and enriching books for their classrooms.
