December 2014 SWEbinars
Our SWEbinar program, offered free and open to the public, continues in December with some great sessions for the CSW and CSS crowd. This month we will offer a session on Scotch titled “A Journey through Scotland: Understanding Scotch Whisky” with Russ Kempton, CSS! Scotch whiskies, including blends and single malts, are diverse in style, yet the country of origin is exclusively Scotland. Each of the 10o+ operating distilleries in Scotland is capable of producing an array of unique whiskies. Join Russ Kempton, CSS, and discover how Single Malt Scotch and Blended Scotch are just as complex, edgy, and mystical as their cousins in the world of wine. “A Journey through Scotland: Understanding Scotch Whisky” with Russ Kempton will be offered on Tuesday, December 9th at 7:00 pm central time.
Also, back by popular demand, we will once again be offering “The Insider’s Guide to the CSW Exam.” If you are currently pursuing the CSW Certification, or considering the CSW as your next stage of professional development, this session is for you! This online workshop will cover all aspects of the CSW, including what the test covers, how difficult the test is, what type of questions to expect, the resources available to students, and how long SWE recommends for study before sitting the exam. This session is led by Jane A. Nickles, CSS, CWE (SWE’s Director of Education). You will have a chance to ask any and all questions about the CSW – she’ll answer just about any questions save for “what are the answers?” The Insider’s Guide to the CSW Exam will be offered on Saturday, December 6th at 10:00 am central time.
SWE’s SWEbinar series is unique in that it is offered free-of-charge, and open to the public! We also try to accomodate all schedules by offering sessions on weekdays and weekends, as well as daytime and evening hours. If you have a topic you would like to see addressed, or a time-of-day that would work for you, please let our Director of Education, Jane A. Nickles know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org

When the SWE Adobe Connect homepage appears, click on “enter as a guest,” type in your name, and click “enter room.” Remember that each session is limited to 100 attendees, and that several of our past sessions have reached capacity. We are hoping to avoid this issue in the future by offering more SWEbinars, but its still a good idea to log on early!
- If you have never attended an Adobe Connect event before, it is also a good idea to test your connection ahead of time (just click on the link).
