Logistics for In Person Activities

  • Attendance Sheet- completed ONLY by those wishing PD credit.  Remind participants in advance that they will need an IEIN.
  • Evaluations/Survey – distributed and collected at the conclusion of the activity. Sample survey questions will be sent to you.  Tip: Use the completion of the Evaluation and the Survey as the last activity of the presentation.  As the teacher returns the survey and the evaluation (two separate pages, though you may distribute them double-sided), give the teacher the Evidence of Completion. After the activity, create a summary of evaluations, using one of the evaluation forms. 
  • Evidence of Completion - to be distributed to each person who wishes to earn PD credit and has signed the attendance sheet with IEIN and has returned an Evaluation and Survey. 

Logistics for Virtual Activities

  • Attendance – Participants wishing to earn credit must give the chapter designee IEIN and email in advance.  Those participants must use video (not phone) connection 10 minutes in advance and answer an oral roll call prior to the session.  The chapter designee will record the beginning and end time of the session, complete the Attendance Sheet provided by PD Coordinator.
  • Evaluations/Surveys – Following the session, the chapter designee emails the evaluation and survey to participants who wish credit.  Participants complete and return forms to the chapter designee. 
  • Evidence of Completion – After the chapter designee receives a completed evaluation and survey from a participant, she sends that participant an Evidence of Completion form.
