Results From The Iowa Landscape

Hollingsworth, H., Buysse, V., & West, T.

The purpose of this survey conducted in fall 2011 was to gather information across multiple sectors to produce a descriptive landscape of early childhood professional development (PD) in Iowa. A total of 343 early childhood PD providers responded to the survey (see method section for additional details). These PD providers answered questions about the characteristics of the learners (the who), the content of the PD (the what), and the methods used to promote the acquisition and application of knowledge and skills in practice (the how).
