Jane White

Online Instructor, Early Childhood Education Program

Jane White began her learning journey at UBC 30 years after acquiring her undergraduate degree. Returning to academia while in her mid-50’s to complete an MA in Early Childhood Education at UBC in 2012 offered mental space and freedom to re-think, re-explore and re-connect within a vibrant and supportive learning community. She feels privileged to be able to extend and apply this wealth of UBC expertise further into practice through the dimensions of her daily work to reach a larger audience of families, educators and researchers that in turn, directly translates into benefits for the wee humans we know, work and live with every day. For her, graduate studies at UBC reinforced a love of learning and rekindled wonder, curiosity, enthusiasm and a renewed commitment to her profession. She teaches the online course ECED400 Introduction to Early Childhood Education and Care.
