After the session:
  • YOU MUST COMPLETE this FEEDBACK SURVEY to receive a PD certificate. This is NOT the only requirement for a certificate. Please take the time to tell us about this session. Thank you.

  • Read more about Prof Dev Certificate requirements here.

  • Certificates will be sent to you via email the final week of August. We are sorry, but we cannot honor requests for "express service" on certificates.
    Add these addresses to your address book so your certificate will not go to "SPAM":
  • Did you learn a lot? Want to help TeachersFirst continue to provide free service and professional development to teachers? You can make a contribution. large or small by credit card using the Contribute Now button on our non-profit parent company, The Source for Learning's web site.
  • Recordings for all archived OK2Ask sessions since March, 2013 are available here> . Please wait a day or two for the recording of this session to be posted.

Please read this information about professional development certificates. The requirements include active participation during this live session and completion of the online Feedback Survey within one week of the session. We STRONGLY encourage you to complete the survey as soon as you leave the session while things are fresh in your mind. We value your feedback!

Unfortunately, we will not be able to accommodate
  • requests to complete the survey after it closes
  • requests for duplicate or replacement certificates once we send them out for a session

OK2AskĀ® is a free service from a non-profit, the Source for Learning, Inc. Our small staff and limited budget require us to streamline administrative tasks as much as possible in order to maintain OK2Ask as a free service. We use our resources to develop and share the highest possible quality professional development, while keeping administrative costs as low as we can.

Just as you, as a teacher, feel strongly about verifying that your students have completed objectives, we feel very strongly about issuing certificates only to those who meet OK2Ask session objectives. This verification process requires significant time. Relaunching the survey and/or reopening the process to re-verify and reissue a certificate is simply not possible, given limited resources.
