Transforming Ordinary Moments into Extra Ordinary Growth


Keynote Speaker, Dr. Junlei Li
Saul Zaentz Sr Lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education

Junlei Li, Ph.D. is Co-Chair of the Human Development and Education Program and the Saul Zaentz Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. His research and practice focus on understanding and supporting the work of helpers – those who serve children and families on the frontlines of education and social services. Working in orphanages, schools, and youth programs from North America to China, he develops the "Simple Interactions" approach to help identify what ordinary people do extraordinarily well with children in everyday moments. Dr. Li teaches about improving human interactions and supporting helpers, and delivers keynote addresses and workshops for child-serving professionals nationally and internationally.
