Webinars are becoming increasingly popular, allowing people to participate in online seminars and workshops using a computer with internet access.
Participants hear the presenter’s voice and see slides used in the presentations.
Since 2011, the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI) has been conducting a successful webinar program covering a range of winemaking, winery management and viticulture areas, providing an excellent opportunity for growers and winemakers to hear practical advice and up-to-date research presented by AWRI staff and grape and wine industry experts in their field.
A new series of webinar programs, commencing on September 9 with sessions continuing until mid-December, has been launched by the AWRI.
Topics that will be covered in this series include: changes to chemical labels for spray drift reduction, carbohydrate management and vineyard productivity, how to choose the right Shiraz clone for your vineyard.
One of the interactive seminars, Riverland Revitalisation, will be presented by Riverland winegrape grower Ashley Ratcliff on October 23.
Each webinar consists of a presentation followed by a Q&A session at the conclusion. The webinars are usually conducted on Tuesdays or Thursdays and participation is free, but registration is required.
