Educational Webinars

Each month, the IES presents a live webinar on topics we believe will be beneficial to our membership and the public at large. We are excited to offer you this education-oriented program where you can expand your knowledge about lighting and earn IES continuing education credits (CEUs). We hope that you will join us.

The Educational Webinar Series features two categories of webinars; IES Standards Webinars and IES Lighting Education Webinars.

IES Standards Webinars: Each webinar is devoted to a specific IES Standard. These webinars are typically presented by one or more lead contributors from the authoring committee of the standard. Webinar attendees have an opportunity to hear directly from experts who have in-depth knowledge on the topic of the standard. In addition, there is an opportunity for a question and answer session at the end. This allows viewers the ability to engage directly with the presenters.

IES Lighting Education Webinars: Each webinar is devoted to a relevant and important lighting topic.

For IES members, viewing the live webinar is FREE. In addition, each webinar is recorded and made available on through our website two weeks after the live event takes place. Viewing the archived webinars is available only for IES members.

For non-members, viewing the live webinar costs $20. The archived recordings are only made available to IES members as a benefit of membership. Click here to become an IES Member

Login information will be sent to each registrant the week of the webinar; on Tuesday morning and again at 10:30 am ET on Thursday (the day of the webinar). Be sure to always check your spam and clutter folders to ensure that you received this important information.

Slide decks of the presentation will not be distributed.

Well-Lit for Well-Being in Hospitals: The Connection Between Quality Light and Enhanced Health Care Environments

September 23rd 12:00 PM ET

As the hospital experience transforms from primarily “sterile” patient environments to more comfortable, curative spaces focused on well-being and support, ongoing research continues into the connection between light and health. This research is impacting the way designers technologies to enhance the hospital experience.

Lighting, daylighting, and control can play critical roles in healthcare spaces, and in this panel, we will explore emerging ideas from industry thought leaders including best practices for hospital lighting design, where lighting design is headed, and different approaches to integrated lighting technology.

Panelists will engage in a robust presentation using predefined questions as prompts, and featuring back-and-forth discussion between panelists. The last 10 minutes of the presentation will be open to audience questions.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

We Aren't Psychologists, Scientists or Technologists So How Do We Incorporate The Hot Topics of Today Into Our Daily Design Lives?

October 14th 12:00 PM ET

There have always been concerns that impacted our designs such as budgets, schedules, and product availability but today there are many new areas of concern. We are suddenly asked to incorporate circadian lighting, address Coronavirus (or the next pandemic), address concerns for specific individuals who may have medical conditions that make them particularly sensitivity to glare or flicker. Controls used to be a switch or a dimmer on the wall and maybe a 4-scene preset if it was a particularly upscale place. Now we have wireless technologies, PoE, “smart” cities and buildings, digital twins, WiFi and LiFi. Energy use has always been a part or our design but broader topics of sustainability and equity and now being addressed. How do we keep up? Develop new expertise? How much do our clients care about these topics? Are we really designing for them? With demand for expertise in these areas growing, are our clients changing? Are they asking more from us? We’ll ask these questions and more and get answers from a distinguished guest panel.

Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
