Subscribe To Our Calendar for Free Online PD!

Image of A CalendarJo Hart (from C.Y O’Connor College of TAFE) and I have been running free online professional development every Friday since 31 October from 9-10 AM (Perth, Western Australia time). Anyone can join us and each week we cover different topics based on input from the participants.

This Friday’s topic is techniques for making Live Classrooms such as Elluminate more interactive. Both Jo and I have been using Elluminate for several years with our distance learning students. Elluminate is also really good for hosting meetings. You can get your own free Vroom here which is handy when you want to hold discussions or doing training with a small number of people.

I’ve set up a Google Calendar for this PD and will be adding online PD/Conferences to the calendar as they are brought to my attention. If you would like to attend our PD and be automatically notified please subscribe to our calendar. Google Calendar will automatically converts our time zone to your time zone. Read this post to learn more about using Google Calendar to make your life easier.

  1. Thanks for offering these! I participated in last week’s quite by accident as a result of a ‘tweet’ (thank goodness I am connected to the right people!).

    The information and camaraderie was great!

    Thanks for creating the google calendar – it smoothly integrated into my own google calendar so now I hopefully won’t miss a session!

    Hope to see you this Friday! To support the “share and share-a-like” nature of these sessions…if I make it to the meeting, I hope to share some ways to make powerpoint presentations more interactive which lends itself to interactive online sessions and classroom activities.

  4. @Su At the bottom of my Google Calender you should just need to click on the + Google Calender (bottom right). This should take you to your Google Calender account and ask if you want to subscribe. I can also add you to the mailing list if you like?
