This is the kick-off event for Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due, one of the main forums for CEM, covering such questions as:
- What can educators do themselves to get more support and recognition?
- How should educators’ investment in learning to improve their performance and enrich the profession be supported, incentivized, documented, and recognized?
- What schools and districts are providing model levels of support, and how can their approaches be better disseminated and applied?
- What does the future hold for current informal recognition systems like badges?
The kick-off will consist of panel and open discussion moderated by Tom de Boor. Panelists will include Al Byers, Dan Hickey, Claudette Rasmussen, Ruth Rominger, and Eric Sheninger; the forum itself will take place on Proteacher.net.
