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 when in-person professional development was not possible, NEAIR pivoted to virtual offerings held via Zoom. Due to the popularity and convenience of this format, we have expanded our virtual workshop offerings for the 2023 season.  The 2023 Professional Development season is our best yet, and it is with pride that the committee offers these workshops to members.

Based on the popularity of past workshop seasons and the feedback from NEAIR members, the 2023 season has two major changes from years' past:

  • The 2023 season has expanded beyond the summer months; workshops are scheduled from April through October 2023.
  • Workshops cover three main themes: Technical Skills, Professional Communication, and IR Policy and Context.

Workshops are typically 90 minutes long and focus on teaching a specific technical skill or task. NEAIR leadership has priced these workshops with an eye toward access and affordability. Fees for each 90-minute-workshp in the 2023 season are as follows:

  • April 2023-August 2023: $29 for members/$59 for non-members
  • September 2023-October 2023: $35 for members/$70 for non-members
