The Mississippi Council on Economic Education is pleased to partner with our national Council for Economic Education (CEE) and NextGen Personal Finance (NGPF) to bring you professional development webinars for teachers nationwide. The webinars cover multiple topics on how to integrate personal finance and economics in the classroom and create a fun learning experience for your students.
When you attend the webinar(s), you will leave with relevant lessons, resources and tools that can be implemented the next day. Mississippi teachers earn 0.1 Continuing Education Unit (CEU) for each webinar. You must attend a minimum of 5 in order to apply for and receive CEU credit. You must attend a live webinar in order to receive a certificate of completion. Example: 5 webinars = 0.5 CEU’s
When you have completed a minimum of 5 webinars please collect the certificates of completion that you have received from either/or CEE and NGPF and complete the form below to apply for your CEU Credit. CEU’s will be issued to you by email within 30 days of receipt.
**Many of the webinars are interactive so it is recommended that you participate from a desktop or laptop computer rather than your smart phone.**
