Or for those using this benefit for the first time, what webinar based on the title are you most interested in watching?
My recent favorites have been "Public Speaking - How to Plan, Design, and Deliver a Presentation" and "Engineer Your Own Success: 7 Key Elements to Creating an Extraordinary Engineering Career"!
While in the process of wrapping up my continuing education at the end of last year, I came across one called "Completion: Failure of Molecules, Bones, and the Earth Itself: Nanotechnology and Bioinspired Materials in Civil Engineering (AWI101812)"
This presentation was a high level discussion of the design of different Civil Engineering materials, and the compared the "Top-down" approach vs the "bottom up" approach of material design. While it wasn't directly relevant to any aspect of my Water Resources background, I found the topic material to be absolutely inspiring and loved the number of comparisons drawn between things found in nature (such as spider-silk) and materials used in engineering.
