We have started offering free monthly ReasonIO webinars to the general public. Each of these webinars are roughly 45 minutes long and are focused on a topic, text, and thinker that provides the focus for the longer 2-hour intensive online seminars for that month.
The webinars are scheduled at 12 PM Central Time at the dates provided below. Each consists in about 20-25 minutes of lecture and focused discussion on the topic, followed by plenty of time for Q&A. If you can’t make – or for some reason miss – the webinar, that’s not a problem! We’ll be recording them and making those recordings available for those who would like to watch them later on.
Each of the webinars is hosted on the ReasonIO online meeting space.
