When was the last time you attended an OPS sponsored webinar? Mine was July 28 - Low Vision Rehab. In a word it was insightful. In fact, all 3 webinars that I've attended have exceeded my expectations. (And the same will be true of the 4 more I'm registered for). Which is why I'm writing this blog! I came up with 3 reasons why I love these educational programs. Of course there are more than just 3 reasons and we'd love to hear your responses too.
#1 - Relevance.
The topics under consideration are very relevant to our profession. In fact after each webinar I was able to put into practice points that I had gleaned.
#2 - Time.
Let's face it, whose life today isn't busy? If The Beatles were singing about 8 days a week in the 60's, what would they say now? Anyway - to take just 1 hour of my time on occasion suits me just fine!
#3 - Ease.
Question: in the past, have you ever gone to an OPS annual meeting and if you have, did you bring your recliner or large sectional couch with you? Absurd right??? But with webinars, that's right, you can stay right on your soft saddled couch guilt free! And might I add - you can also enjoy your favorite refreshments. (I'll keep you guessing as to what I like).
So, my point:
without leaving your house, nestled in a relaxed atmosphere which is conducive for learning, we have at our fingertips a remarkable and a very resourceful tool.
There you have my 3 reasons why I love these webinars! Now it's your turn. Please let us know what you love about our OPS sponsored webinars.
