IRC - ISBE Professional Learning Offerings

The Catalog lists detailed descriptions and information about free workshops, webinars, and regional institutes offered online for Illinois educators at no cost.

These workshops are led by IRC's education specialists and are sponsored by ISBE.
Due to COVID-19 concerns, all face-to-face workshops and regional institutes originally scheduled as face-to-face meetings will now be held online. If you are registered for any of our offerings, you will receive correspondence for how to access courses/PD sessions online.  We are fully aware of these challenging times and are doing everything imaginable to continue serving all of you.  Please continue to access our website for updates or new developments.
