Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due: Incenting and Recognizing Teachers for Their Investments in Learning (Al Byers, Dan Hickey, Claudette Rasmussen, Ruth Rominger, Eric Sheninger, Tom de Boor [mod])

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

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.
