How Centers & Groups Might Schedule the Course
70
The mix of live and pre-recorded talks provides a lot of flexibility for you to fit this course into your schedule.
71
72
- Join both live events in each section and schedule the remaining pre-recorded sessions whenever it is best for your center (e.g., Sunday mornings, or weekly evenings).
73
74
- Watch the recordings of the live events (first talks of each course) and the pre-recorded talks at times that are convenient for your center.
75
(e.g., you could schedule the course on five weekday evenings, if that is best for you, and not worry about attending the live events.)
76
77
- Organize a weekend program using all the recordings
