Printed material from the Symposium presented by Chip Fair, M.Ed.
States now emphasize a variety of instructional initiatives as schools face ever-increasing pressure to improve student outcomes. Teachers certainly feel this pressure. Yet, one teacher misstep in special ed can prove very costly to your school system. So it’s imperative to keep your staff informed on IDEA compliance needs as their attention is diverted elsewhere. These materials offer professional development best practices to help you train your staff smarter, not harder. This includes methods to do more with fewer staffers, as well as to provide training using the Internet, email and social media. They also offer inventive ways to help you follow-up and assess the effectiveness of your training.
Symposium 2 was held April 29, 2015 in Denver, Colo., in conjunction with the 36th National Institute on Legal Issues of Educating Individuals with Disabilities® (April 26 - 29, 2015).
