Online Learning Modules
Online learning is a way of delivering education, instruction, or training using Internet-based technologies to learners who are not physically present in one location in an effort to extend the reach of content to a wider audience. These self-paced learning modules, available in multiple formats (self-paced courses and IRIS STAR Legacy modules), incorporate interactive, application-based learning. These modules are intended to introduce users to intensive intervention and the components of the data-based individualization (DBI) process.

NCII’s Online Learning Modules & Course Content
This module provides the foundational information for users interested in learning more about intensive intervention and DBI. The module defines intensive intervention and DBI, describes how intensive intervention fits within a tiered system such as MTSS, RTI, or PBIS, demonstrates how intensive intervention can provide a systemic process to deliver specialized instruction for students with disabilities, and provides two case examples to allow viewers to apply new knowledge.
NCII, through a collaboration with the University of Connecticut, developed a set of course content focused on developing educators’ skills in using explicit instruction. This four part course is designed to support faculty and professional development providers with instructing pre-service and in-service educators who are developing and/or refining their implementation of explicit instruction.
IRIS STAR Legacy Modules
In collaboration with the IRIS Center and Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform Center (CEEDAR) Center, NCII developed a two part series focused on DBI using the IRIS STAR Legacy Module format.
This module overviews DBI and provides information about adaptations for intensifying and individualizing instruction. It is designed for individuals who will be implementing intensive interventions (e.g., special education teachers, reading specialists, interventionists).
This module offers information on making data-based instructional decisions. Specifically, the resource discusses collecting and analyzing progress monitoring and diagnostic assessment data. This resource is designed for individuals who will be implementing intensive interventions (e.g., special education teachers, reading specialists, interventionists).
