SECE 5091 - IEP Meeting Facilitation and Conflict Resolution

Drexel University's IEP Meeting Facilitation & Conflict Resolution online course is available to educators and families to support the school-home partnership envisioned by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Implementation Act of 2004 (IDEA). This course provides the participant with the practical facilitation skills and strategies to ensure efficient and collaborative IEP meetings.

Long recognized as best practices by the U.S. Department of Education, facilitated IEP Meetings have been recently promoted by the School Superintendents Association (AASA) as a preferred way of resolving the majority of Special Education disputes.

The Conflict Resolution and IEP Meeting Facilitation course focuses on communication, team-building, and understanding the IDEA requirement to conduct collaborative IEP meetings. It combines voiceover Power Point with videos in 15 sessions, and learning is supported with 3 live webinars hosted throughout the course. This self-paced course takes approximately fifteen to twenty hours to complete.

Webinars will be held following the 5th, 10th and 15th modules. The timing of these three live online sessions encourages students to complete each of the three, 5 module sectors prior to each associated webinar.

This course is offered though a partnership between Drexel University School of Education and Key2Ed. Upon completion of this course, participants will receive a Drexel University Continuing Education Certificate in IEP Meeting Facilitation.
