2019-20 Schedule of Learning Bridge Webinars​

Learning Bridge Webinars

Learning Bridge webinars are the most accessible and affordable form of professional development. One-hour webinars take place at your school. Simply use your computer's Internet connection to view the presentation with any number of participants from your school community. Participants can listen via computer speakers or over the telephone, view speaker presentations and post questions on-line in real time. Recorded sessions can be replayed for future meetings. ISACS has developed an exciting line up of webinars for faculty, administrators, trustees and parents. 

Please note that ISACS is unable to provide any continuing education credits or certificate of attendance for a webinar as we cannot confirm that an individual participated in the live webinar or listened to the recording.

A few days prior to the Learning Bridge the contact person from your school will receive program outlines, notes and login instructions. The contact person should forward this information to all participants from your school.

A recorded version of each Learning Bridge will be available for paid registrants to view for four weeks following the live presentation. This allows more members of your school community to listen and view the webinar.
