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. The course structure allows an educator to learn, create, practice, and evaluate material relative to their individual school setting. Learn more >
