Are Econiful’s PD events free?

Yes! You can access all our PD events at no charge. Of course, you incur an opportunity cost, but we’re confident the program will be better than your next best alternative.

Where do your PD events take place?

All Econiful PD events take place online. We offer synchronous PD via Zoom and self-paced PD modules via Nearpod.

Do you record your virtual PD events?

No. We believe Zoom-based professional development is at its best when educators can engage with the presenter, the content, and one another.

How do giveaways work?

Giveaways are limited to U.S.-based Econiful members. For a typical 60-minute program, members must attend at least 45 minutes to be eligible for the giveaway. Members can win program-related raffles no more than three times per semester.

Will I receive a certificate of professional development when I participate in an Econiful event?

Yes. Everyone who attends a typical Econiful PD event (60 or 75-minute session) and misses no more than 15 minutes of the program will receive a certificate of professional development.
