Frequently asked questions
When do online workshops occur?
Smekens online workshops are available on-demand. Each workshop is pre-recorded and ready when you are. By leveraging our PD for teachers online, learning can happen alongside your schedule.
How far in advance do I need to arrange an online workshop?
If you are paying with a credit card, you can access any online workshop immediately. If you pay with a purchase order, your access can start in one business day or less.
What is included with an online workshop?
When you register for our online workshops for teachers, you get one year of access to video footage captured during a live, full-day seminar. The length of these videos is, on average, at least five hours.
In addition, registrants also receive a full-color downloadable handout and lifetime access to a password protected “secret website” of related resources.
How do I register and pay?
Individual educators may register online with a credit card or by submitting a downloadable registration form with a purchase order. Groups of two or more should email or fax the downloadable registration form to Smekens Education with a purchase order.
What happens after I register?
When individual educators register online with a credit card, they will be linked directly to the teacher training workshop. When groups of two or more register, easy to follow access instructions will be emailed to all participants.
Am I allowed to share my online workshop with others?
Allowing others to view or access your personal registration for our online workshops for teachers is prohibited. However, schools may purchase a site license to allow every teacher to have their own personal registration.
Are online workshops appropriate for an entire staff?
Absolutely! In fact, most of our online workshop participants gain access through a school site license. Viewing online PD courses for teachers together as a staff is an excellent way to build shared goals and understanding.
Are online workshops interactive?
Every one of our online workshops for teachers is broken into several smaller video segments. These segments frequently end with a prompt from the instructor to “turn and talk.” If you’re watching by yourself, this time can be used for reflection. If you’re watching our online PD courses for teachers with a group, collegial conversations are encouraged.
What is a site license?
Site licenses are available for schools and districts with 20 or more participants. This teacher professional development online includes a substantially discounted rate, along with negotiated access periods.
Do you have a satisfaction guarantee?
Every online teacher PD workshop comes with a 100% money-back guarantee. Our simple and effective strategies are sure to transform the way you teach. We stand behind this workshop with full confidence.
