Educator Web Conferences

Through a contract with RTI International, funded by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), AIR manages a cohort of 30 higher education professionals who serve as IPEDS Educators. These individuals assist in the development and delivery of more than 30 national face-to-face workshops online tutorialsonline Keyholder Courses, and other training materials. A call for new Educators occurs each year around March (current Educators).

Throughout the year, IPEDS Educators participate in web conferences to lean more about higher education data and how they relate to institutional decision making and policy discussions at the state and national levels. AIR invites presenters from various agencies who offer timely and relevant information to IPEDS Educators. These sessions are designed for IPEDS Educators and shared with the larger higher education community for everyone's benefit.
