Webinar Schedule and Participants' Guide

Webinar Dates

Starting on Wed Jan 13, 2021 from 7-8:30pm Eastern, we will have a live weekly webinar each Wed for 6 weeks, ending on Feb 17, 2021. Please mark these dates and times in your calendar! If you miss the live webinars, the recordings will be posted in the course afterward.

To access the webinars, you will simply need to click on the webinar join link that is posted in each week of the course. This link only works on the appointed day and time for that webinar, so while you can try clicking it sooner, it won't open the webinar meeting for you.

You may also join our webinars from a mobile device by installing the official Zoom app from your preferred app store. Then, when it's time for a webinar, simply open your Zoom app and enter the 9-digit meeting ID that will be posted at the top of each week in the course.
