What could be better than attending an inspiring educational conference where you can connect with fellow education professionals, learn about the newest trends in your field, flex your creative muscles, and explore downtown Austin? Attending the same conference, and receiving professional development credits for it, that’s what!
From March 4–7, 2019, education professionals from around the world will convene at SXSW EDU Conference & Festival in Austin. Make plans to attend and be a part of this innovative event that aims to foster and empower the education community. ATPE is once again partnering with SXSW EDU to certify selected sessions for CPE credits. That means you can earn valuable credits while enjoying inspiring sessions, interactive workshops, hands-on learning experiences, and more. To register to attend SXSW EDU, go to sxswedu.com/attend. And the sooner you register, the lower the rate!
How does it work?
Sessions and workshops that qualify for CPE credit will be tagged both on the online schedule and in the printed conference materials to help attendees identify eligible sessions. SXSW EDU attendees who attend the CPE-eligible sessions will receive a code that they can use to log in to the ATPE Professional Learning Portal and receive credit. And you don’t have to be an ATPE member to use our system! You can log on as a guest to claim credit for your CPE hours.
What types of sessions qualify for CPE credit?
Last year, ATPE’s CPE experts reviewed the SXSW EDU schedule and identified more than 100 sessions and workshops that were eligible for CPE credit. Sessions that were CPE approved for educators included ones on equity, access, and education for all learners; media literacy in an increasingly digital world; social emotional learning; data privacy; and preparing students for an everchanging workplace. If you’re unsure whether your session meets the criteria, check your SXSW EDU program, or come see us at the ATPE booth.
