More Information

Another HUGE and special thanks to you for volunteering at the conference!

More information:

  • If you are interested in getting further involved with the conference and possibly serving on the GEC Leadership Team, then this is a good place to start. Lucy and Steve can get to know your work a bit better if you are more active in the GEC community. 
  • This is a great place for you to start to get to know other globally-minded folks!  We believe that global projects are best designed by teachers who have an pre-existing professional relationship. 
  • Highly experienced (and really dedicated) volunteers often serve as "Super Moderators". This means that they supervise a longer shift and assign volunteers to session rooms. 
  • We also need volunteers who can translate conference materials into other languages. 
  • Occasionally, we have special volunteer projects such as developing multimedia tutorials and publicity materials for those who are highly skilled with technology.
  • We will have volunteer badges for participants for this year's conference season.
