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!
The Association of Texas Professional Educators is pleased to announce that we are teaming up once again with SXSW EDU to provide conference attendees with continuing professional education (CPE) credits. You already know that attending SXSW EDU is an amazing professional development opportunity! ATPE just makes it official.
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 150 sessions and workshops that were eligible for CPE credit. Sessions that were CPE approved for educators included ones on equity, innovation, social emotional learning, mental health, implementation, design thinking, and more. If you’re unsure whether your session meets the criteria, check your SXSW EDU program, or come see us at the ATPE booth.
