Issues In Education: The Mary Culkin Lecture Series, The Exceptional Child
The Early Childhood Education program at Naropa University offers this public lecture series starting January of 2013. The lecture and discussion series has been developed in memory of the late Mary Louise Culkin, who taught in our ECE program for many years and helped to develop the Masters Degree in Contemplative Education. Mary envisioned opportunities for extended learning like this lecture series for the regional early education community. Through this series we learn from regional and national leaders in the field of early care and education, and become connected as a larger educational community. The lecture series is open to all interested members of the community. Certificates of attendance will be issued to those desiring contact hour credit documentation for re-licensing or other purposes.
The lectures are Wednesday evenings from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Wilderness Early Learning Center at 2845 Wilderness Place, Boulder, CO 80301
Suggested donation is $8 per event ($5 for Naropa Students). All donations are used to support the Contemplative Education Scholarship Fund.
