Tutorials come in many forms and serve many purposes. On our Website, you will find short audio and video descriptions about how to find and efficiently use the IRIS resources.

Web Tours offer groups of faculty, professional development providers, state department administrators, and others an in-depth guided look at the IRIS Website. These hour-long Web Tours require participants to connect through their personal computers. To schedule your own Web Tour, contact us at iris@cgu.edu

Webinars focus on a specific topic or education-related issue. Check out Upcoming Events to learn about future Webinars. Visit the Archived Webinars section to access previous events on topics like response to intervention, classroom management, and fidelity of implementation.

IRIS Materials used in targeted and intensive services are posted on this Website for universal use. These include matrices of national standards and how they align with IRIS resources; concept maps that demonstrate how case studies, information briefs, research summaries, and activities can be used to wrap around IRIS Modules for more in-depth learning; and workbooks for our various seminar offerings, among much else.
