We organize several Professional Development Days per year where:

  • Participants share successes, challenges and lessons learned.
  • Participants experience first-hand all new Lumina tools and new developments.
  • Participants learn best practices concerning assessment use and interpretation
  • Participants give comprehensive feedback in a group and individual settings.
  • Participants conduct detailed interpretation and analysis of Portrait results.
  • Participants practice and demonstrate data interpretation and feedback proficiency.


You will be given a great deal of notice of our Professional Development Days each year. Attend any Professional Development days hosted by Janice Parviainen. The agenda is based on the requests of our practitioners, best practice request and new materials of Lumina Learning. Collaboration and sharing our successes is the common theme of these inspirational, motivational and informative events.
