Using Inquiry and Insight to Improve Program Quality

October 30, 2014

9:00 am - 3:30 pm

Anderson Conference Center, Macon, GA

Curiosity begins at an early age. Children are naturally inquisitive about everything they see. Yet throughout childhood and adolescence, curiosity diminishes significantly. Adherence to curiosity over time creates the path to further and further learning. It is those who continue to ask questions – those who answer one question and ask another - who eventually become the experts in given fields. How do we help our children and youth never to lose their curiosity? How do we help them accept what they are told but also to question what they are told? It is up to us as adults to encourage wonder in our children and youth.

*All of these courses have been approved for 5.75 core continuing education clock hours by NASW-GA.*
