Designing and Delivering a Virtual Development Education Conference

Start Date: 22/04/2020 End Date: 22/04/2020

Event Location: Zoom

In the third and final of our series of online sessions on delivering Development Education virtually, we will be looking at Designing and Delivering a virtual conference for the Development Education sector.  

When:  Thursday 23 April from 2.00pm – 4.00pm GMT via Zoom.  

What to expect: In this interactive session we will explore key considerations for designing a virtual conference, from the architecture of the event (using virtual tools e.g. SLACK and Howspace) to delivering an interactive learning experience for a large group of attendees (e.g. using Open Space Technology). This training will provide you with a rapid action road map to move a conference to a virtual or blended setting. A key point of emphasis will be on not just moving content but creating a meaningful way to engage participants and assess the level of engagement. We will also dedicate time to consolidate learning from these 3 trainings and consider how members can collaborate and what further supports may be needed.
