Event description

Description

As part of Ryerson's School of Child & Youth Care's 30th anniversary celebrations, we invite students, educators and professionals in the field of Child & Youth Care to join us for a special Symposium:


New Directions for Post-Secondary Child & Youth Care Education


Wednesday, September 18th, 2019, 1pm to 4pm

International Learning Centre (ILC), Ryerson University, International Room

240 Jarvis Street (between Gerrard and Dundas), Toronto

This symposium will feature a panel of leading educators in Child & Youth Care programs in Ontario discussing and debating new directions for post-secondary child and youth care education. Themes and issues to be explored include accreditation, anti-racism, pedagogical innovations, standardization, professional certification, as well as more broadly the nature of child and youth care practice in the 21st century and the knowledge and critical perspectives necessary to respond to historical grievances and current and future challenges and opportunities. Members of the panel will present their vision in short and concise terms (4 minutes each), followed by a round of facilitated discussion among the panel members. After a short break, the discussions will be opened to the audience to engage panel members and each other on some of the most pivotal issues facing our sector today.

Light refreshments provided.
