Do you want to have an active role in shaping the DEN? Do you like to blog or share what you’ve learned on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest? Does hosting an event for area colleagues or mentoring new STARs sound fun to you?
YES?!?! Well then, being on the DEN Leadership Council is right for you!
DEN LC members are the most active members of the DEN. They mentor new STARs and each other. DEN LC members host local events supported by Discovery Education. They support social media efforts and contribute regularly to the DEN blogs.
Being a part of the DEN Leadership Council (DEN LC) is a commitment, but it also comes with many rewards.
By remaining actively engaged, members of the DEN LC receive a number of benefits:
- Active voice in shaping the DEN
- Increased networking opportunities
- Access to the Discovery Education suite of products
- Formal recognition (e.g., press releases, features on the DEN website, etc.)
- Priority for exclusive events (e.g. Summer Institute, Discovery Channel events, etc.)
This year, we invite all STARs to apply to be a part of the DEN LC. We want to know what you are passionate about and how you want to contribute. So, we have created a number of teams from which you may choose to participate.
