Recordings of Academic Forums
As part of Regional & Continuing Education’s efforts to share the valuable knowledge on the California State University, Chico campus, we record guest speakers and academic forums. These videostreamed presentations cover a variety of academic disciplines, and the online format allows anyone interested to access the materials any time, view the presentation multiple times, and print handouts when available. Transcripts are provided for many of these presentations, either with or without PowerPoint slides.
To explore these offerings and view the presentations, use the list of subject areas in the green navigation block to the right.
In addition to these presentations, recorded workshops from the CSU, Chico Student Learning Center, Wellness Center, Career Center, Liberal Studies, Academic Advising and the Cross-Cultural Leadership Center enrich the experience of online students by providing study and test-taking tips, career guidance, and forums relating to mental and physical health.
