Educators.Network began in 2020 as a social media campaign called #HireHigherEd, which was spearheaded by Eric James Stephens, PhD. Eventually, the campaign pivoted to #TranslateAcademia.
After two years of helping K20 educators from faculty to administrators, we decided to focus on what we're good at: community building and event planning. We don't need to recreate resources. We can create the marketplace for the exchange of those ideas and services.
We decided to build it in Gather Town. We host pop-up events and small conferences dedicated to educators, which is anyone who has worked in education. At these events, participants learn from experts and network with each other to build a better future for education.
We believe that education is changing in a big way, and that change will ignite with an exodus of educators.
