Ross Thompson, M.Ed., a lead teacher at the Shirley G. Moore Lab School in the Institute of Child Development, recently traveled to South Korea to build a graduate student exchange with Seoul National University (SNU). Thompson was joined by Marina Aleixo, Ph.D., program director of international initiatives and relations at the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD).
During their trip, Thompson and Aleixo visited the SNU lab school, a training site for graduate students, and met with teachers to exchange ideas on research and best practices for early childhood education. Thompson also gave a talk on big body play and integrating early childhood education.
“It was an amazing first meeting with the faculty and grad students at SNU,” Thompson said. “The level of dedication and eagerness to learn displayed by the students shows the workings of a great potential partnership. We look forward to continuing to cultivate our relationship with SNU and its Lab School.”
