2017 in Review: Online Learning

ASLA's 20 Professional Practice Networks (PPNs) help support your practice and provide a forum to make connections outside your market. In 2017, PPNs provided excellent opportunities for professionals in the same areas of practice to exchange information, learn about current practices and research, and network.  

Thank you to those who shared experiences on The Field blog and shared their expertise as Online Learning presenters! Below, we highlight the top 5 live Online Learning presentations of the year, but be sure to check out the full PPN: 2017 IN REVIEW for additional information. 

To provide our members with professional development opportunities, ASLA offers Online Learning webinars, many of which are hosted by the PPNs on a topic of special relevance to their members.
