Distance Learning Webinars and Forums

While Direct Instruction (DI) is designed for face-to-face, real-time interaction between an instructor and students, it can be used in a distance learning environment.

NIFDI offers a series of webinars and forums to help you help your students experience success with Direct Instruction at the same level they would if you were in the classroom with them. Our goal is to offer one event a week. Some of these are free, others will have a fee. The events that have a fee will also include resources that you can use for review as well as to share with others. You can find information about upcoming sessions on our events calendar on the right side of the website. Click here if you would like to join our email list and be notified directly.

We currently offer two Webinars, with more to come. Click on the title to read about each one.
