Workshops & Webinars

An Immediate Immersion workshop or webinar is a great way to bring professional development to you!

Whether it be a department or district in-service or you’d like to organize a local workshop in your area, Immediate Immersion has a lot of options to provide just the right professional-development opportunity for you and your colleagues.

Select from any of our tried-and-true presentations and workshops or have us customize one specifically tailored to your needs. We offer half-day, full-day, and multiple-day workshops on a multitude of assessment, grading, classroom management, TPRS®, and other comprehensible-input topics to truly bring your teaching to the next level.

Looking for online training? Immediate Immersion also offers pre-recorded and custom webinars. An Immediate Immersion webinar is an online presentation or workshop that is accessible anywhere there is an internet connection. Generally, if you can watch a YouTube® video, you’re good to go!

Participating in an Immediate Immersion webinar is much like attending any other presentation or workshop. You will be able to listen to and see the presenter, view the presentation, ask questions, and obtain handouts all from the comfort of your closest internet-connected computer!

What makes webinars great is that people from all across the world can participate in the same workshop at the same time for a fraction of the cost of a traditional workshop or presentation. There are no transportation or lodging expenses, you don’t have to eat out, you don’t have to use your gas. You can sit back in the comfort of your office or living room and participate in a great presentation.

All of our presentations, workshops, and webinars come with a certification of completion upon request showing the number of contact hours you spent in training as well as offer the opportunity to earn follow-up, graduate-level credits from the University of the Pacific/Benerd College for an additional fee.
