Enrollment is now open for the 2014-2015 DEN Leadership Council (DENLC). DENLC members are the most active members of the DEN.
- They mentor new STARs and each other.
- DENLC members host local events supported by Discovery Education.
- They support social media efforts and contribute regularly to the DEN blogs.
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 expanded features in Discovery Education
+ Formal recognition (e.g., press releases, features on the DEN website, etc.)
+ Priority for exclusive events (e.g. Summer Institute, Discovery Channel events, etc.)
All STAR Discovery Educators are invited to apply to be a part of the DEN LC each spring. DEN LC members choose a team with whom to work. Here’s a little information about each team and what they do.
Events Team- Plans local and regional events supported by Discovery Education. All members of this team are expected to support or host at least one LC event. The Spring and Fall VirtCons are perfect launching points.
DEN Ambassador Team- Provides support to districts that are just beginning to launch the DEN Community. Members are paired with one of Discovery Education’s partner districts to provide additional support and answer questions.
Innovation & Strategy Team- Provides feedback/ideas for product improvement, community enhancement.
DEN Connects Team- Creates projects and supports opportunities for educators to connect their classes with other classes involved in the project.
DEN LC Content & Curriculum Team- Provides feedback on existing content and curriculum about our free partnership programs as well as guides the resources being built to support these programs.
