The NCRA Learning Center is back with two new webinars in September designed especially for reporters and educators working remotely. Remote depositions and online education are here to stay, and these sessions will provide you with the tools and strategies you need to succeed. Registration is open now.
On Sept. 20 Hector Cordova, CLVS, and Alan Peacock, FAPR, RDR, CRR, CRC, present Audio and Video Settings to Make the Most of Your Remote Depositions. “Members attending the session will learn tips to help them create the ultimate remote (Zoom) experience,” says Peacock, who has been captioning for over 30 years. “We will take a deep dive into Zoom settings and review connection options for your optimal audio and visual recordings.” Peacock’s co-presenter, Cordova, brings his experience filming hundreds of videos and presenting in hundreds of trials each year for some of the nation’s largest firms. Total CEU 0.125.
On Sept. 27 NCRA offers a webinar for educators struggling with the “distance” between teaching and learning in an online environment: Taking the Distance Out of Distance Education, presented by Robyn M. Hennigan, RPR, CRI, and Rene Eneix, M. Ed. Total CEU 0.1.
“Teaching the skill of stenography in a distance education environment has many challenges: Student engagement, student motivation, self-discipline, etc.,” says Hennigan. “Rene and I hope to share some thoughtful strategies to help overcome these challenges and create teaching/learning experiences that both educators and students alike enjoy and benefit from.”
NOTE: Educators at NCRA-approved court reporting programs may attend for FREE; other educators receive a $30 discount code. Email email@example.com for more information.
