There’s something about February. Maybe it’s that corporate fiscal years have now had enough time to swing into movement. Maybe it’s that academic calendars are looking ahead just a few months to the end of another school year. Or maybe it’s just that people are looking for a smart reason to escape the winter weather.
Whatever the case, February is the month that’s long served as the informal kickoff to the spring conference and event season.
Over the next few months it’s a sure bet just about everyone will find themselves at a keynote, convention, or internal town hall, learning everything from the latest quarterly results to the latest thinking in our areas of expertise.
That is, if we can make the time to attend.
The realities of our busy modern schedules mean all too often we have to miss out on live events and presentations – trading in learning and development opportunities to instead fight the daily fires of work or school.
Thankfully, however, that choice between attending an event and attending to our work is on its way to becoming an outdated concern. More and more, events and presentations large and small are tapping into the power of video to give audience members who can’t attend in person a “next best thing” experience.
It used to be that video was too complicated (not to mention expensive) for all but the largest events to offer live webcasts and on-demand session recordings. But now with video platform software like Panopto, just about anyone can record and share just about anything, anywhere – with just the click of a mouse.
This week (with February in full swing) we saw more and more people taking advantage of the power of video to share ideas, send messages, and make a statement. And in the spirit of passing it on, these are just a few of the ideas shared this week with Panopto.
Join Ashley Young, Orthopedic Physical Therapy Resident at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Center for Sports Medicine for this video presentation of her case study on the treatment of hip dysplasia in adults. Young opens with a review of the characteristics of the conditions, and then delves into the details of the current standards for surgical procedures and rehabilitation guidelines.
Don’t miss Hastings Constitutional Law Quarterly’s 2015 Symposium, “The Religious Rights of Corporations in the Aftermath of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby,” recorded live at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law. “Hobby Lobby” is an extremely important Supreme Court case that interpreted the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) to allow closely held for-profit corporations to be exempt from a law that its owners had religious objections to if there is a less restrictive means of furthering that law’s interest. This symposium includes speakers from all sides of the issue, with some strongly supporting the decision, including Eric Rassbach who represented Hobby Lobby, others, like Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, who find it deeply problematic for women’s rights.
Finally this week, we look to the stars, as Alessondra Springmann teaches the story of an asteroid that passed nearby Earth in 2013. Springmann examines the scientific opportunity the near-miss provided, including both what we learned about the asteroid itself and what the event taught scientists about how to manage potential future space debris flybys.
