> Dear Valerie,
> 
> I haven't been interested in the past to participate in the various webinar professional development sessions promoted on this listserv, but when I read through the topics for this fall, I started thinking that this might really be a useful way to spend my time and develop professionally.  Then I clicked the information link and was shocked to see the cost of the webinars.  Full-time faculty on our campus get only $450 annually for professional development.  I would have to save up for two years to participate in just three webinars!
> 
> In these days of so many financial cutbacks for higher education, it's getting increasingly difficult for colleges to fund professional development activities for staff and faculty.  Our state now prohibits out-of-state travel for employees, so we can't attend conferences outside of Washington without special written permission from college administrators.  One would hope that web access could make information MORE accessible!
> Do you know how the price of the webinars was determined?
> 
> It's too bad that more of us don't have the opportunity to participate in the webinars due to their cost, especially if their content is ultimately intended to help us increase student success.
