FAQs

Should I become an Econiful member?

Anyone can register for and attend our PD events, but if you are a current classroom teacher serving students in Grades 6+ you should become an Econiful member

Econiful members are eligible for giveaways associated with PD events and can access our on-demand modules. There is no fee to create a membership.

Are Econiful’s professional development events free?

Yes, there is no monetary fee for participating in our PD events. Of course, you incur an opportunity cost, but we’re confident the program will be better than your next best alternative.

Where do your events take place?

All of our PD events are virtual and take place via Zoom. We include both virtual and in-person events in Partner Events.

Do you record your virtual professional development events?

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

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

Yes, everyone who attends a PD event (arriving no more than 10 minutes late and leaving no more than 10 minutes early) will receive a certificate of professional development.
 
If the program is 1.5+ hours and you attend at least half of the program you will receive partial PD hours. 

Do you offer an alternative to a Grubhub credit?

At some of our longer PD events we offer attendees a credit with Grubhub. We do not offer an alternative. If Grubhub does not operate in your community, please know that we make Grubhub credits available until the end of the day, so you might be able to arrange to pick up food in a nearby community where Grubhub does operate.
