Professional Development Services

The NEAIR Professional Development Services (PDS) Committee was established to develop and implement professional development opportunities for institutional researchers.  During the pandemic, NEAIR pivoted to virtual online professional development workshops and webinars. Due to their popularity and convenience, we've continued with this format in Summer 2022.

Our Professional Development Workshops, Sharpen Your Skills with the NEAIR Toolkit, are typically task-oriented or technical in focus and last approximately 90 minutes. NEAIR leadership has priced these virtual workshops to be affordable for everyone at $29 per 90-minute session for NEAIR members; $59 per 90-minute session for non-members.  

For summer 2022, we have focused on two major themes:  Data Visualization and Streamlining Automation.  Please click on the button to see the current offerings.

Sharpen Your Skills Workshop Series

Have you missed a past workshop? NEAIR has curated most of our past professional development workshops in our Online Learning Course center.  Past courses have included workshops on Tableau, Power BI, SQL, R, SWOT Analysis, and many more.  These courses are for members only and are priced at $29 per ninety minutes of instruction.

Online Learning Courses

The IR Guiding Light webinar series is an additional professional development opportunity focusing on current issues in IR and is free for NEAIR members.  These webinars are recorded.  Past topics have included data governance, best practices on working remotely, and the role of data in DEISJ, and much more.
