Topic Areas

You can list up to 13 Topic Areas in TED. We’ve listed TED’s default Topic Areas below. Choose only those default Topic Areas relevant to your organization’s work, then add in customized Topic Areas to cover the rest of your work. Each time you set up a new event in TED, you’ll enter which Topic Areas it covers. Then, in the Summary Reports, you’ll be able to see what events were offered, and who from which organizations has attended trainings, in which Topic Areas. Once you set your list of 13 Topic Areas, you need to keep them the same from then on. Try to leave a couple of open spots for topics that emerge over time.

Each time you set up a new person in TED, you’ll enter their role. Then, in the Summary Reports, you’ll be able to see the Roles of those you are serving. You’ll also be able to send out emails to those from specific roles in promoting your events.

Another group of Roles in TED are those of Other Certificated Professionals (OCP). You can add in as many OCP Roles as you wish. They will all be summarized in the reports under the role of Other Certificated Professionals. But, you will still be able to select and send emails to people from these individual OCP roles as needed.
