Employees may join these webinars from any computer with speakers and use the chat function to ask questions or comment.
Note: Although a telephone number will be provided to participate, the telephone number is one with a long-distance charge. Therefore, the computer speakers (or earbuds) and chat function is the preferred method for participating.
Supervisors may request a webinar topic for a department meeting or retreat. In addition, employees may request a topic for a future webinar date. Simply review the ComPsych Catalog posted at ComPsych webinar page (http://www.alaska.edu/hrtraining/e-learning/compsych-learning-events/ ).
