The Integrated Education Services team is committed to providing quality professional learning experiences that are research-based, data driven and technology infused in order to build the capacity of our component districts to meet the needs of all their learners. In addition to district specific, onsite learning experiences we offer a full catalog of regional opportunities. The chart below explains those regional opportunities so that component districts are able to best utilize their professional development resources in making sure the right teachers are in the right place for learning.
Regional workshops are designed based upon the needs of the component districts as well as current federal, state and local initiatives. Regional, and onsite work, typically falls into the the larger categories and view of curriculum, instruction and assessment expressed in the image to the left.
Regional workshops may be face-to-face, online or blended depending upon the learning and the audience. All workshops use learning targets to frame the learning and result in participants creating an action plan based upon those learning targets. Workshops currently being offered may be accessed by visiting the E2CCB calendar page and workshop resources are available using the tabs above.
The IES Team is committed to helping our districts build the capacity of their teachers to be lead learners within their home districts. As a result, we offer two collaborative, community building opportunities for regional teachers: Regional Forums and Communities of Practice. Descriptions of these two groups are in the Professional Learning Formats document above.
Participants must register for regional workshops using WinCapWeb. Information on setting up an account and WinCapWeb are available here. Additionally, component districts are able to use the Substitute and Stipend Reimbursement Coser to receive aide on substitutes and stipends paid as a result of attendance at regional workshops. Additional information around substitute and stipend reimbursement is available here.
