VRI in the Time of COVID
- Registration Closed
This webinar is 0.2 CEUs in the category of Professional Studies (PS) and is presented at the Little to None Knowledge level.
COVID took us by surprise and has strongly impacted our community work with VRI becoming a staple, rather than an option. With no real prior education on how to navigate working remotely, a lot of us have been left to figure it out as we go along. This webinar is designed to discuss the various platforms used in VRI, tools for setting up our home office, as well as tips on how to team effectively.
Target Audience: Professionals working within the ASL community
