Biodynamic Association webinars and online courses are live, interactive, video-based classes in which you can participate from anywhere in the world.
During the session the instructor will offer a presentation accompanied by a slideshow which may incorporate photos, graphics, text, and other visual aids. There is time set aside for questions and answers in each session, and any participant can ask a question via video, phone, or chat. Some classes also include small-group conversations in which participants discuss questions relevant to the content with two or three of their peers.
Live sessions are recorded for those unable to attend or who wish to review content later.
