Faculty Seminars are 1.75-day events during which, typically, representatives from a college join others from across a state or region for some hands-on work. Particular focus is on using our Website and instructional resources, embedding IRIS resources into course-management systems, and revising course syllabi. The overarching purpose is to improve beginning teachers’ knowledge and skills about evidence-based practices. Following the seminar, faculty participants can remain connected through an e-community of practice and complete the revisions to their syllabi.

Work Sessions are daylong events specifically designed to assist college programs engaged in revising their entire curriculum or new programs seeking certification. The goal of Work Sessions is to assist in the integration of evidence-based practices and related IRIS resources throughout the targeted program(s).

Professional Development (PD) Seminars are daylong training events for those who deliver either induction or professional development services for practicing educators. These training events include an overview of the IRIS Website with particular attention to the use of resources for specific topics in direct PD activities.
