Information

GEC 2015 Volunteers

Discussion and email group for volunteer moderators for the Global Education Conference. Please join this group!

We thank you volunteering your time to benefit thousands of educators around the world. This is also a great opportunity of you to work closely with the GEC Leadership Team and make global friends. Volunteers keep this conference going, and we are deeply appreciative of the dedication of many to this event.

Please read the important notes in the "Important Volunteer Information" section below. Here is some additional information:

  • If you are interested in getting further involved with the conference and possibly serving on the GEC Leadership Team, then this is a good place to start. Lucy and Steve can get to know your work a bit better if you are more active in the GEC community. 
  • This is a great place for you to start to get to know other globally minded folks!  We believe that global projects are best designed by teachers who have an pre-existing professional relationship. 
  • We mostly need volunteers to moderate conference sessions during our November conference week. We provide training on how to use Blackboard Collaborate, our conference platform, so that all volunteers are comfortable using this tool.
  • Highly experienced (and really dedicated) volunteers often serve as "Super Moderators". This means that they supervise a longer shift and assign volunteers to session rooms. 
  • We also need volunteers who can translate conference materials into other languages. 
  • Occasionally, we have special volunteer projects such as developing multimedia tutorials and publicity materials for those who are highly skilled with technology.
  • We will have volunteer badges for participants for this year's conference season. 

Thanks again for your all help! You are essential to this conference!

Important Volunteer Information

A HUGE and special thanks to you for volunteering at the conference! Here are some notes that you will want to keep handy during the event:

  • Sign up for volunteer time slots at https://gec2015volunteer.youcanbook.me/.
  • Please note that training information for you is here. You are responsible for learning to use the Blackboard Collaborate platform.
  • The time of your volunteer session(s) once you have signed up is listed on the schedule page for your time zone. Please double check to make sure you know when you are scheduled for volunteering.
  • IMPORTANT: The private page that lists the presenter/moderator links for each individual session is http://www.globaleducationconference.com/page/presenter-and-moderator-linksThis is where you and the presenters will find the link to enter the session room with the correct privileges. This page is just for presenters and moderators, so please do not share it as we do not want any participants entering session rooms as moderators.
  • Please join the volunteer lounge 30 minutes before your volunteer session begins to coordinate with other volunteers and get your room assignment. The link to the room is http://thevolunteerlounge.me. You can keep your session room and the lounge open at the same time.
  • Please continue to let people know about this free conference! You can find promotional materials here.
