Workshops

 

The Institute for Inter-Connected Education uses multiple formats for workshops. Which connects with you?

  • Pre-conference workshops. We identify 2-3 conferences per year and put on a 1/2-day, pre-conference workshop.

  • Regional workshops. See our Local / Regional page for more information, but know that IICE is always looking to perform workshops in an area close to multiple institutions.

  • Local workshops. See our Local / Regional page for more information, but we will happily create a customized experience just for your institution’s needs.

  • Denver workshops. Have faculty around the country and want a central place to gather? Want to create a development experience that also promotes some get-outa-town fun? Let us host you in beautiful Denver, CO. It is the sunniest city in America and has incredible activities throughout the year. See our Local / Regional page for more information.

  • Online workshops, webinars, and classes. We will sometimes promote (and are also happy to create) online synchronous or asynchronous experiences using platforms such as Zoom, Canvas, and more.

The following “modules” (topic areas) represent Institute Faculty & Fellows expertise.  See our current schedule of events page to sign up for a regional or local event, or assist in bringing us to you!

(Note - some base costs are identified on the Local / Regional page)

Modules & Outcomes

Every workshop or seminar will include meaningful templates, inventories, or other assets for practitioners to use immediately.  Some assets will be for personal use whereas others may be helpful in promoting ideas, communicating messages, or simply managing projects with other institutional stakeholders.  As well, all experiences include access to a Community of Practice.  Attendees will have access long after an event to connect, network, brainstorm, or just talk through operational / strategic ideas with peers.


As professional educators ourselves, we are keen to ensure that all Institute experiences are genuinely interactive.  Using a wealth of active learning strategies, ICE practitioners will meaningfully connect participants to one another, to learning, and to practical application.  

As well, participants can expect to come away with resources, access to websites, and other materials that will help them use their new-found knowledge more meaningfully.  This also includes access to Institute Faculty and Fellows for support and the practical application of lifelong learning.
