Summer 2021 Un-webinar Series
Unlike a traditional webinar, during an un-webinar, the audience decides where the discussion goes. There is a different umbrella topic for each session, but at the beginning of the un-webinar, attendees vote for the most popular questions or sub-topics (submitted in this registration form), and the most popular sub-topics will be opened up as discussions in smaller groups, with a moderator/facilitator. All language educators are welcome! You can sign up for just one, a few, or all of them. Click here to register.
Where: Online via Zoom. Sessions will not be recorded.
The dates and topics are:
June 9 at 2:00pm Eastern/1:00pm Central — Heritage learners / mixed-level classes.
