The workshop will be held at ETV, 1041 George Rogers Blvd, Columbia, SC 29201. Directions.
STEP 1: Look over each days sessions: Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday Decide which day(s) you wish to attend.
STEP 2: Registration is OPEN: Complete a registration for each day you wish to attend. (Not individual sessions.) IF the day is full, just check back a few weeks before since we will have a few cancellations.
Registration: Complete a registration for each day you wish to attend. Print a schedule for each day (Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday) you are attending and select your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for each session. Then come early and go to your first room. If that one is full, you will have to go to your second or third choice. We will NOT be able to overfill rooms-fire marshall's orders. There will be PLENTY offered so you WILL be able to find GREAT sessions to attend.
We filled up in less than 24-hours last time! We do not have a waiting list. We will have cancellations. Just check back each week to see if there are openings. Debbie has a GREAT line-up. THANKS to all of our presenters!
STEP 3: SHARE a flyer.
LAPTOPS: We have a limited number of laptops for the hands-on workshops so if you happen to have a laptop you can bring for yourself that has wireless network capabilities, that will help us tremendously. And then you will have all of your work saved on your computer! Thank you.
GENERAL SESSION/LUNCH: Will be a very informative each day. Do attend!
USB/JUMP Drives: Some sessions will have work you can save to a USB drive ("thumb drive", "flash drive") so bring yours if you have one.
Headphones/Earbuds: You may want to bring a pair if you have one.
Parking: Park in the front or in the back. (Ignore the numbers on spaces. They are for football games.)

Certificate of Completion: You may request a certificate at the end of your last day showing the "seat hours" you attended. Each session is worth 1.5 hours of seat time for up to 6 hours/day (this includes the presentations at lunch). This is NOT to be mistaken for recertification hours. (See that option below.) YOU need to ask YOUR district if they will accept these "seat" hours as PD/Staff Development hours/credit. Individual districts will determine if and how they count the hours.
