IDEA Workshops

Illinois Digital Educators Alliance prides itself on providing uncommon experiences for our learners. Our workshops are no exception! Whether it's social emotional learning, engagement strategies or authentic integration of technological tools, you can expect to walk away from a workshop with various tools and techniques and a plan to implement them tomorrow!

In a typical workshop experience you can expect to be invited to participate in a take away activity immediately. Facilitators plan the workshops based on best pedagogical practices and encourage learners to participate and contribute to the learning experience as much as they are comfortable doing. But it doesn't end there! Once topics are introduced, IDEA staff takes time to create authentic learning examples for teachers to relate to and apply to their content areas. Groups then are given an opportunity to reflect and share on the content provided.

But perhaps what sets IDEA workshops apart from all other PD providers are the coaching conversations that occur. Learners are encouraged to use the time we have together to engage with the lead facilitator, ask questions specific to their content area and CREATE! We understand how difficult it is to find the time to work on something new, so we build in time within our workshops to allow you the opportunity to create with your new skills alongside a coach and guide.

Join us in any one of our workshop sessions today. We can't wait to work with you more!
