Workshops and Webinars

Personal & Professional Development

Our workshops and webinars are available at no cost to professionals working with young children or parents of young children with special needs. Webinars can be accessed using a laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Use of a wired connection will provide participants with the best webinar experience.

STAR NET Region II works with our early childhood community representatives, workshop participants and the Illinois State Board of Education to identify helpful training topics. You will find detailed information about each workshop and webinar in our Training Calendar to help you determine which sessions will meet your professional development or informational needs. Please read the Workshop Guidelines for registration information, workshop and webinar content levels, and licensure and continuing education information. You can register online through links on the individual workshop descriptions.

* If you require special accommodations in order to attend one of our workshops or webinars, please give us at least two weeks notice. *
