We extend an invitation to all interested UD faculty, staff, and students to participate in these events. Each Webinar consists of an approximately 60 minute presentation followed by a 30 minute Q&A session.  Each is presented by an accomplished expert in the area. Topics cover a range of basic and cutting edge research methods issues and areas.  The sessions are suitable as an introduction to a topic, a refresher, continuing education, or for an area expert session as part of a graduate class in research methods.
