Try video-based professional development for your school today. 

High performing teachers make a huge difference to learner outcomes, and to see this change, teachers require professional learning and development that maximises the practical application of theory.

IRIS Connect bridges the gap between teaching theory and teaching practice by connecting educators with one another through smart, innovative video-based Professional Learning and Development software allowing them to inquire, reflect and refine practice collaboratively.
