General Information

Kia ora Koutou

It's so great you are planning to join us for Spotlight on practice 2021 - online. We really look forward to welcoming you.

Here's a few things you may be wondering about or need help with.

Making sure the technology supports your learning
In order to access the conference you will need a device that can access Zoom, with a camera and microphone and have reasonable internet coverage. If you have the capacity to ethernet cable your device to your modem this is ideal, however good wifi will suffice.

We will offer several time slots online to check your technology access prior to the conference and we can give you a quick lesson in how to use the online learning platform if you are not familiar. We will supply the online zoom links once you have chosen your workshops.

We will offer tech support on the day if you have lost the meeting link.

Please consider your technology access as part of your decision to register.

Choosing your workshops

Your registration provides you with 6 x 1.5 hour online workshops, running over three half days 16 - 18 November, 2021. You can choose one workshop in each workshop session line.

Workshop times are 9.00 - 10.30am and 11.00am - 12.30pm on these three days.

We will send you out a workshop selection survey 3 weeks prior to the start of the conference and ask you to select your workshops based on the blurbs. We will then send you a list of your choices with the link to access each workshop on the day.

Please note workshops will not be recorded and made available afterwards. The intention is that you are able to attend 'live' as these are interactive online events with both facilitators and participants on screen.

If there's any other queries please feel free to get in touch, we're happy to help, please call on 04 470 0110 or email
