Maine Educators Consortium (MEC),a small non-profit organization founded in 2009, was established for the purpose of identifying and addressing Maine’s need for college accredited, application based, educator-driven, professional education courses.  Since 2009, MEC has designed and delivered college accredited courses to over 9000 Maine educators.   MEC’s courses, designed “by educators for educators”,  are relevant, educator-friendly, and applicable.  Course structure allows for an educator to learn, create, practice and evaluate material relative to their individual school setting.
