CIDDL Cizzles is a gamified professional development evening with one educational technology advocate as the Cizzle chef. At each meeting, the chef highlights an innovative technology in relation to teacher preparation and "Cizzles" a related meal.

The chef will have 5-8 minutes to discuss the technology and 5-8 minutes to discuss or demonstrate cooking the dish. The top three "CIDDL Cizzles" chefs will compete in Orlando, Florida in January, 2022 at the CEC conference with the top chef securing bragging rights for the next season.
