Dr. Brian Hudelson, Director of the University of Wisconsin Plant Disease Diagnostics Clinic in Madison, was scheduled to present a talk on “Diseases of Evergreens” in both River Falls and Eau Claire, but those classes were cancelled because of the COVID19 situation. As an alternative, Dr. Hudelson will be presenting that class via Zoom, a distance teleconference program, so that you can participate and learn about evergreen diseases from the safety of your home!
Zoom is easy. Prior to the presentation, you will receive a link via email. At class time, you simply click on the link, and you will join the teleconference. Minimum requirements are a good internet connection, and speakers on your computer to hear the presentation. You can join by smart phone or tablet, laptop or desktop! Most questions will be handled via a “chat box”, where you can type in your questions in real time to be answered. If you don’t have a good computer/internet connection, or speakers on your computer, you can call into the program and listen along, although it is a long distance telephone number so that should be considered.
There will be two sessions (repeats) of this presentation offered, one in the evening and one in the afternoon to try to accommodate everyone’s schedules and availability:
Tuesday, April 14, 2020, at 6:30 p.m.
Wednesday, April 15, 2020, at 1:30 p.m.
In order for us to best manage these presentations, we ask that you pre-register for the session of your choice! There is no registration fee, but signing up ahead of time will really help us. Sign up by sending me an email at: Diana.firstname.lastname@example.org
Simply say which of the two sessions you plan to log into. Prior to the presentation, you will receive an email with the connection link, the handouts for the presentation, and any other information or instructions needed. We expect the presentation to last about 90 minutes, depending on questions, etc
