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.

To obtain IES CEUs you must be individually logged in for the duration of the webinar. CEU Certificates will be distributed within two weeks of the live event. No credits are given to those who log in exclusively by phone.

“To Light, or Not to Light?”: Developing Lighting Concepts

November 19th 12:00 PM ET

What is lighting design, and why does focusing on lighting layouts fall short?
Lighting layouts are not the same as lighting design. Quality lighting design begins with concept development – a form of programming for the visual environment that considers many elements such as perception, contrast, and visibility. This seminar outlines the steps taken on various diverse projects to address those essentials and create the desired mood, atmosphere, and functionality.

The case studies span different sectors, from heritage to retail to residential, and identify the range of challenges that good design can help overcome, with many universal lessons.

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

Color Outside the Lines: Unconventional Applications for Dynamic Lighting

December 17th 12:00 PM ET

Dynamic lighting unlocks a whole new layer of lighting capability for lighting designers and engineers, but do you know how to use it? What applications is it appropriate for and what can it be used to do? This presentation will explore some innovate ways to use dynamic light and showcase some unconventional examples. Presented by Lutron’s building science team – Brent Protzman, PHD and Craig Casey – the presentation will explore the use case example, key details on how to think outside the box yourself, as well as how implement the strategies presented yourself.

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