In this educational and entertaining Web Seminar, Barry Lane focused on four tools to aid revision.  These tools included growing leads from questions; digging for details using binoculars; writing snapshots and thoughtshots to replace typical  “show don’t tell”; and playing with time by exploding moments and shrinking centuries.  Participants viewed two videos with one providing examples of how to grow leads and the other on exploding a moment in time.

Here are some comments from participants:

This was an excellent PD experience. It was convenient and the technology was simple to use. The presenter was well prepared and efficiently shared important and motivating information.

Web seminars are wonderful! A great way to interact with experts in our field at the convenience of your own office and time.
