Please review the Additional Terms and Conditions for the Study Series carefully before registering.

We aim to offer the highest quality, innovative, and inspiring professional development and collaboration opportunities. To that end it is important that we have an accurate accounting of registered participants and can fully fund the exciting experiences we will bring to you. Each event is made up of only a select and limited number of participants. Therefore, we must adhere to clear Terms and Conditions and appreciate your understanding. If you need clarification, please do not hesitate to write to us prior to registering. Once you have registered, you have agreed to abide by these additional terms and conditions.

ADDITIONAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR THE “STUDY SERIES”

Please read our General Terms and Conditions which govern this additional set of terms and conditions.

Registration

  • Individuals may apply for themselves or an unlimited number of others employed by their district or organization, until the available number of “seats” have been filled.
  • One virtual “seat” is equal to, and may only to be used for, one specific and identifiable person. This one person is then granted a “Group Viewing License” which allows then to invite a group of employees from the same school or organization to view all registered sessions in-person, together on the same screen.
Group Viewing License Information
  • While we prefer individual participants join us for the entire year, the Study Series does permit a few one-time substitutions for individual webinar sessions (described below) as so long as only one specific and identifiable person is using the seat for that session.
  • An individual is considered “registered” after they have completed the online registration process and payment has been processed and received.
  • The Educator Collaborative reserves the right to deny or revoke registration to any individual for any reason, these decisions are private and final. Depending on the timing of this decision (as described below) full, partial, or no payment may be refunded.  If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact us prior to registration.

Certificate

  • Certificates are available for access at anytime during the course period, after the course period concludes, members may no longer have access and the site administrators may not have the ability to reprint certificates.

Cancellations and Substitutions

Event spaces are limited and we must make use of every available seat. These strict guidelines ensure every person who wishes to actively attend has an equal opportunity to do so. Thank you for your understanding.

  • If you have already registered and later need to cancel your seat (or one you created for another employee), you must write an email to Contact@TheEducatorCollaborative.com to request a cancellation. Each session you wish to cancel must be clearly listed in your email and will be checked against our records.
  • Single Session Registrations (including multiple Single Session registrations):
    • “Single Session Registrations” are any member who is not registered for the Full Year series and instead as one or multiple a la cart registrations.
    • Within 36 hours after the registration, but not less than 30 minutes prior to the registered Session start time (“Grace Period”), you may cancel for a full refund. This policy is based on clock hours regardless of day of the week (e.g. a registration on a Friday at noon would have a Grace Period up until Saturday at midnight so long as the Session does not begin less than 36 hours and 30 minutes within that time period).
    • Do not register less than 36 hours before a Session unless you are certain you will attend as a complete refund cannot be granted after that time, whether you viewed or not.
    • If you wish to cancel any Single Session after the Grade Period, you will forfeit your entire registration fee for that Session.
  • Full Year Registrations are granted more flexibility in cancellations:
    • “Full Year Registrations” are any members of the Full Year Series, but not members of a Virtual Think Tank cohort with Full Year Registration included (for cancellation policies for Virtual Think Tanks, please see those Terms).
    • Full Year members may not cancel Single Sessions for a refund, instead, per these Terms, may only cancel the entire remainder of their Full Series as described. Members may then reregister for any Single Sessions of their choosing at any time.
    • Within 36 hours after a registration, but not less than 30 minutes before the first (1st) Session start time (“Grace Period”), you may cancel for a full refund of the entire Full Year Study Series.
    • If you wish to cancel after the Grace Period and within three (3) calendar days AFTER any of the first four (4) Sessions you will receive a refund calculated as follows:
      • “Registration Fee” multiplied by ((12 – “Number of Sessions Presented to Date”) divided by 12) minus a $75.00 “Administrative Fee.”
        • For example, cancellation after the third session would be: $Fee x ((12-3)/12) – $75
      • This is calculated whether you viewed each session presented or not.
      • Each Session already presented will remain within your membership after cancellation, all others will be cancelled.
    • If you wish to cancel after three (3) days following the fourth (4th) Session is presented you will forfeit your entire fee.
  • Participant substitutions, for the same seat and registration level, are not encouraged, however one-time substitutions are permitted for up to 5 webinars within the series. One-time changes can be made prior to the session by writing to Contact@TheEducatorCollaborative.com and specifying the webinar session, current name and email, and substitution name and email.
