Collaboration with:

Rebecca New, associate professor of early childhood education, does on-going collaborative research with Italian colleagues on Italian early childhood services—with a specific focus on home-school (parent-teacher) relationships and the Italian concept of partecipazione [akin to civic engagement]. She continues to work with educators in Reggio Emilia; and in the translation of Reggio Emilia principles in non-Italian (international) contexts.

Dr. New has facilitated a Memo of Understanding with the University of Milano-Bicocca in Milan.
