Restorative practices engage students in learning by giving every student a voice. In a restorative practices classroom, all students take initiative to create their learning experience. By building relationships — educators-to-students and students-to students — restorative practices create vibrant learning communities.
The International Institute for Restorative Practices (IIRP) works with schools and other organizations to implement restorative practices. A private accredited graduate school, based in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA, the IIRP offers professional development worldwide, as well as a Master of Science and a Graduate Certificate in restorative practices, which can be completed 90 percent online.
The IIRP produces books, videos, implementation tools and free online educational resources through the Restorative Works learning network http://restorativeworks.net.
Part of a large worldwide movement of scholars, policy-makers and practitioners who are advancing the field of restorative practices, the IIRP has affiliate organizations in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Latin America, Singapore and Australia and licensees worldwide.
