Christopher Watson, co-director of CEED, and LeAnne Johnson, assistant professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, presented their findings on scaling up the Technical Assistance Center Social Emotional Interventions’ (TACSEI) project in Minnesota at the National Training Institute on Effective Practices, in St. Petersburg, Florida, on April 24. The invitation came from Lise Wolf, University of South Florida, the head of the national TACSEI project.
Minnesota was one of only four states chosen to be supported in its scale-up of the TACSEI project. Drs. Watson and Johnson’s work has focused on working with data that looks at child outcomes in diverse early childhood settings in which professional development has been scaled up; this analysis is a first among the states currently implementing TACSEI.
