St Clair opens new ECE Outdoor Lab


St Clair College has unveiled its new Early Childhood Education (ECE) Outdoor Lab at its Chatham campus. The ECE Outdoor Lab provides a space for faculty and students to explore best practices associated with outdoor pedagogy while contributing to local communities. St Clair ECE Professor Brenda Huff explains that the lab is part of the nationwide Outdoor Pedagogy ECE Faculty Research Project. “The involvement in the research project has rooted the new outdoor lab as a focal point for our ECE program by implementing key learnings from the research project,” said Huff. “Our ECE students gain core competencies as graduates by bringing research and practice closer together.”
