We are writing today to notify you of some upcoming changes to the Discovery Educator Network (DEN) field program and websites. Moving forward, Discovery has decided to dedicate its resources towards increasing its online efforts for the DEN. We believe that this decision will allow the DEN to continue effectively supporting our community of educators and our fundamental goal of helping educators form connections, share information and best practices.
As a part of this shift, our active field managers will no longer be full-time employees of the DEN. In the future, we will maintain a team dedicated to coordinating regional and national DEN activities as well as maintaining the DEN website and blogs. We plan to introduce changes to the website after the holidays. In the meantime, please feel free to forward any thoughts or suggestions you may have about how to make the DEN stronger, effective and more useful for your teaching and classroom needs.
This difficult decision was made neither easily nor lightly and we would like to take this opportunity to thank the field managers for their effort, passion and commitment. We know that you will want to do the same and may do so by leaving comments on the blogs.
