CREI Workshop – BASIC

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 “Basic” IDW Workshop goal is to help you become an effective presenter and facilitator of learning.  The “Basic” workshop helps you to assess your instructional methodology.  You will learn about setting objectives for your students, how to reach different styles of learners, and maximize your effectiveness as an instructor to provide the most benefit to your students.

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.
