Throughout the year, MCAN offers various webinars to inform individuals within our network about best practices, emerging trends, and new tools. These webinars are offered free of charge and require advance registration. State continuing education clock hours (SCECHs) often are available. Webinar Recordings are archived and available for viewing for one year after the recording date.

Earning SCECHs

Upon approval from the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), SCECHs are available in a variety of categories for participation in MCAN webinars. See the Michigan Online Educator Certification System to learn more about how many SCECHs are available in which category for each webinar.

 If you provided your PIC during registration and attended the entirety of the webinar, your SCECH will be automatically processed within one week of the webinar. Otherwise, to earn your SCECH, email your name, name of webinar and PIC to following your participation in the webinar.
