2018 in Review: Online Learning

 In 2018, ASLA’s 20 Professional Practice Networks (PPNs) provided excellent opportunities for professionals in the same areas of practice to exchange information, learn about current practices and research, and network with each other—both online and in person at the ASLA Annual Meeting. Thank you to those who shared their expertise as PPN Live and Online Learning presenters!

Below, we highlight the top five live ASLA Online Learning presentations of the year, but be sure to check out the full PPN: 2018 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.
