|Discoveries of Infancy
A PITC Training Session
|Session Format: 3-hour session, 30-40 participants, lecture, DVD, discussion|
|A central feature of this session is that participants view the DVD Discoveries of Infancy: Cognitive Development and Learning one segment at a time, with extended commentary by the presenter, followed by discussion. Each segment focuses on one of the “discoveries” first identified by Jean Piaget. In the DVD, each discovery is illustrated by scenes of infants actively engaged in learning, usually with the supportive, respectful presence of an infant care teacher. During part of the session, participants are invited to explore through active learning how to facilitate early learning and cognitive development.
