Wednesday Lunch Conversation — Human Development Students: Making Connections Between the Classroom and the Community

A cohort of master’s students in Human Development have been involved with research and field experiences in the community this semester.  Some of the sites where they have been working include Mary’s Place, ArtPeace, The Freedom Market, the Rochester School for the Deaf, the Veteran’s Outreach Center, and after-school programs at RCSD.  They have also been assisting on research studies of traumatic brain injuries, the value of Child Life Specialists for families, and children’s social development and family dynamics (Project CONNECT).
A panel of students will talk about their experiences and share their insights from wrapping the theories learned in the Warner classrooms around practices in the field. We will also discuss how to continue to build on our goals of making connections between Warner and the broader Rochester community.  Please come and talk with the students, share your experiences, brainstorm about future network opportunities, and help us continue to build this vibrant part of our programs.
