Online professional practice opportunities

I know work and other classes has made it hard for some of you to get to the professional practice events. Remember, you are required to go to two and write about them for your portfolio blog by Week 10; any more beyond that will count for extra credit. You must fill out the extra credit form for ALL of the events you attend, whether they count for the portfolio blog or extra credit.

Because of scheduling challenges, I’m offering some online opportunities. You may use one for a professional practice event for your portfolio blog, and one more to earn extra credit. (This means you still need to attend one event in person.) If you complete one of these online courses, you need to fill out the form and email me a copy or screenshot of the completion certificate.
