Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education Fast-Track

The goal of this program is to improve the quality of early care and education programs that serve infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families throughout Ohio and the United States. While this is indeed a lofty goal, it is one to which we are committed. We must ensure, not only that our students have a deeper understanding of how to best support children's learning, that understanding must result in improved practice. There is evidence to support the proposition that high-quality e-learning experiences have positive effects on reports of ECE teachers' performance in the classroom (Downer, Kraft-Sayre, & Pianta, 2009).

The program we have developed reflects a deep understanding about adult learning and how to best help adult learners apply what they have learned to their teaching careers. In an effort to help students through this accelerated model we have reconfigured course content in order to best support student learning. Instead of separate 3-credit hour courses that present knowledge in an isolated manner, we have created 9-semester hour learning modules.
