FORMAT: To participate in an audio/web conference, you only need a computer connected to the internet with a speaker. You will hear the presentation through the speakers. Following the presentation, there will be plenty of time for questions and answers.

REGISTRATION: You may have as many faculty as you wish in a conference room, viewing the presentation (which can be projected onto a large screen). Your registration entitles you to one connection only. If your school is logged onto the web server more than once, your first connection will be terminated. Registration is limited to 100 connections. Register early! If we exceed 100 registrations, we will request that the speaker offer the conference again at a later date.

We heard your budget concerns and know that the critical shortage of faculty makes it difficult to take the time to travel to professional development events. To address these needs, NLN is instituting this new format and will offer several audio/web conferences on selected topics on a regular basis. Please let me know which topics are of most interest to you.
