Instructor Development Workshops (IDW) for your CREI Designation


As part of the CREI Designation Application, you will take two Instructor Development workshops – the Advanced Workshop and the Basic Workshop.  These workshops can be taken by any instructor. You do not need to be a member of TRETA to attend the workshops.

The “Advanced” IDW Workshop goal is to help you become an effective presenter and facilitator of learning with technology.  The “Advanced” workshop features usage of technology in your instructional methodology.  You will learn about applications and technology that will aid your students in their learning techniques and interactions with you.

You do NOT have to take the two classes in order. You can take the Advanced before the Basic if that’s the way the scheduling works out for you.
