Webinar update – yes, YOU can attend!

A few days ago I posted about a webinar I’m doing on using academic databases for gardening myth-busting.  At the time I wasn’t sure what the rules were for viewing the webinar, but happily I’ve found out we can have outside viewers!  So here’s the information about when and how to log on to Adobe Connect (keep in mind this is Pacific Standard Time here).

Speaker: Linda Chalker-Scott

Date: Wednesday, November 7

Time: 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Address: http://breeze.wsu.edu/ext_skills/

We have 99 slots for people, so there should be plenty of room.  And if you can’t make it, no worries.  The presentation will be archived so you can watch it over and over and over…

I’ve gotten some great ideas from you – thanks!  Hope to see some of you there.

  1. Kenny, the webinar will be archived and I’ll share the link on the blog once it’s up. And Kevin, yes it’s PST (embedded in the post – should have put it right after the time).

  2. I enjoyed the Webinar today but have a slight problem. I don’t have access to the sites you recommended unless I go to the Extension office. Can you suggest another way to get this information? I followed up on a couple of the topics you searched today and the information I found sometimes conflicted with what was available on AGRICOLA and CAB. I used .edu and .gov to search. This bothers me a great deal since this is how I search for recommendations on topics out of my area of knowledge. How can the Master Gardeners be certain they are giving the best and latest information?

  3. Sandy, I’d suggest you work directly with your MG coordinator or county director. They have direct access to these sites, and part of their responsibilities (I assume) is to assist MGs in developing science-based recommendations. I am guessing if you provided your county contact with some key words for searches, they would be able to run the searches and forward the results to you.
    If, for some reason, this doesn’t sound doable, let me know and I’ll try to come up with something else. Thanks for attending today!
