Registration for Online Learning Option : Oct. 25, 2019 CAEDHH-BC Conference

by | Oct 11, 2019

CAEDHH, in collaboration with the POPDHH, will be piloting a web-streaming option to attend the Oct 25th, 2019 workshop with Sandra Gillam.  We are inviting a few individuals to participate remotely so that we can see the feasibility of providing professional development in this format in the future.  Due to the nature of this being a pilot program, there are some limitations that should be taken into consideration when volunteering to assist with testing!
  • The cost of registration is the same as attending in-person, and we trust that only the registered person will be in attendance.
  • You will be tech-savvy, and able to set-up audio and visual equipment where you participate.
  • You will be able to participate without captioning or ASL interpreting (unless you provide your own interpreting at your site).

To register for this option, please use this unique registration link: http://bit.ly/CAEDHH-BC2019Livestream

You will not need to register through the regular CAEDHH Conference Website Registration Page. Details about how to log in will be emailed to you closer to the conference date.

FAQs

Question: Why is Sandra Gillam’s presentation the only one available for web-streaming?

Answer: Sandra Gillam will be presenting in the main hall and this is where our equipment will be set up. Being our trail year, we do not have the equipment, bandwidth or man power to web-stream two sessions simultaneously. 

 

Question: Why is the cost the same when lunch is not included. 

Answer: We encourage all members to attend in person and join us for lunch. This is an opportunity to connect and network with others in the field of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Education; however, if you choose the web-streaming option you will be saving cost on travel which is far greater than the cost of lunch. 

 

Question: Why make this option available?

Answer: We want to encourage all members of CAEDHH an opportunity to participate in our conference. Many teachers have shared that traveling to the lower mainland can be a barrier to attending. Offering a web-streaming option allows for more members to benefit from the information shared by presenters at the CAEDHH-BC conference. This also encourages attendance in person for following years.
