Webcast Abstract

Most of us have experienced self-paced online courses —these can be perfect for teaching specific, constrained sets of information. But how can you successfully convey sophisticated techniques in an online venue? If you are interested in delivering interactive, collaborative professional development courses, then this “nuts & bolts” workshop is for you.
