Professional Development Credit
GEEO has developed a multi-tiered system to ensure that both teachers and their students receive as much educational benefit as possible from our travel programs. The educational and for-credit components of the program were developed by GEEO staff in consultation with professional educators with expertise at all levels, ranging from elementary to graduate level education.
We award professional development certificates at the end of the program to every participant, at no cost. Every state has different rules on professional development credit, so the amount of credit an educator receives for participating in one our programs varies.
For the past 6 years participating educators have had the option to enroll in a graduate level course for each GEEO trip, however, this year we may be removing this component. Out of 300 participants in the 2014-2015 school year, only two signed up for graduate credit. We are currently deciding whether or not to continue to offer credit.
