NEED CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS?
We offer two ways of validating attendance for educators. Check out the one that applies to you:
- Free continuing education credits for Michigan K-12 educators: As a state university, we are pleased to be able to offer 4-8 free SCECH credits to Michigan K-12 educators registered with the Michigan Department of Education's system. You must attend the entirety of at least four sessions to qualify. Click the link below for details.
- Certificates of attendance for those who are NOT Michigan K-12 educators: We heard you last year that you wanted to be able to get proof of attendance, too. Again this year, we're partnering with our parent conference, the 4T Virtual Conference on Educational Technology, to offer certificates of attendance for a $25 fee. Click the link below for details. We appreciate your understanding that we will not accommodate other requests for verification (e.g., letters to administrators, attendees, school districts, or personnel files; completion of school, district, or state paperwork; etc.).
Please be aware that we must receive all digital documentation by 11:59pm on Friday, July 13, 2018 -- we go on vacation after that and it will be too late!
