Dates & Times:

The Fall Semester runs from September 4 – December 21, and webinars are scheduled on Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 12-3 pm EST. 

Webinars are typically 1 hour in length, including Q&A. This Fall, we’re also piloting 30 minute “Lunch & Learn” webinars, which will give presenters the opportunity to share pro tips, success stories, or expand on a lightning talk.


All presenters will receive an honourarium for their session. 

Tech Requirements:

Webinars and courses are conducted via Adobe Connect. All that’s required is a web browser, a reliable internet connection, and a USB headset with a microphone (if you have one). We’ll conduct a run through in advance to ensure you’re all prepared. You can learn more about tech requirements on our Information for Presenters page.
