Click on the image above for an enlarged view

If you missed Visiting Scholar, Dr. Sharon Bird, at the CSW Women Faculty Luncheon Sept. 25th, 2012, or if you want to review Bird's address and PowerPoint presentation again, the recording of the lecture is available online at

You will need to provide an email address and a name to access this Elluminate Live recording. You will probably have to download a java file as well, to be able to "run" the recording. It might take some time for the recording to open, depending on your internet speed.

The video window of Dr. Bird speaking in this Elluminate LIVE recording is not of highest quality. :-( The PowerPoint slides show up well and the sound is good, however :-) You can move the video window, or even close the video window if you choose. We have a close-up high quality video which we will integrate with the PowerPoint slides as soon as we can - the link to the enhanced version will be provided as soon as possible. Check back often :-) 

In the meantime, ENJOY!
