Format: This clinic utilizes GoToMeeting, a web-hosted service for online video conferencing. Prior to each week’s class, you are given a link and a password for the online meeting. You can use either a desktop or mobile device to connect to the meeting and you can receive audio via computer or phone. The presentation and video are shown via sharing of the instructor’s desktop. Throughout each class, there are discussions and online questions to encourage participation. Note: You must be present for all three classes in order to receive PSIA credit.
