GEEO has developed a multi-tiered system to ensure that both teachers and their students receive as much educational benefit as possible from our travel programs. The educational and for-credit components of the program were developed by GEEO staff in consultation with professional educators with expertise at all levels, ranging from elementary to graduate-level education.
We award professional development certificates at the end of the program to every participant, at no cost. Every state has different rules on professional development credit, so the amount of credit an educator receives for participating in one of our programs varies.
We also offer a graduate credit course. The graduate credit course is completely optional and only for classroom teachers that wish to earn graduate credit in relation to participating in one of our programs. Registration and payment for the credit course are separate and in addition to registration and payment for the GEEO program fee. Credit course participants enrolled in a graduate program must confirm in advance that the credit will be accepted by their degree granting institution’s program as no refunds will be made on the basis of inability to transfer credit.
