What is the CALM Community?

As a continually growing tool, we require and develop a healthy relationship with our users. To accomplish this, we provide outreach programs geared towards assisting both new and experienced users getting the most out of the CALM system. Currently, the most effective of these programs is our On-Site training Workshops. However, we are proud to inaugurate a newer online system, Breeze Question & Answer Sessions.

On-Site training Workshops

Our workshops are used primarily to discuss the usage of the CALM course utilities. they can be one or two days, with the second day always focusing on the more advanced topics, leaving basic course maintenance for the first. Most importantly however, we invite experienced teachers that have been utilizing CALM in their own classrooms to assist in our workshops. this provides clear and pertinent examples of how CALM can be used in real classroom environments. though often held on the IU Bloomington Campus, we encourage and welcome invitations for seminars elsewhere. For more information on the details of scheduling a workshop visit, please contact us via email at

IUB Workshop Directions can be found here.

CALM Study Note: There will be an additional 4 workshops in June and July for CALM Study participants.
