At AOCS, we believe in stretching boundaries both in content and in the format of our learning events.
We have designed an online event, to pilot a virtual conference space where members can learn from shared supervision content and engage in various ways by having discussions with other members. Just like at a regular conference, members can meet up with people they know already and also meet and exchange with people they don't yet know.
We invite you to participate, engage with the 3 topics on show, each with a different treatment, and share your feedback after. That way, we can learn from your experience to help us plan future online events - maybe even our first full AOCS online conference next year! Numbers for this pilot will be limited so register on a first come, first served basis.
We’ll kick off on Thursday 31st October midday GMT/UK time until 16.00.
We realise that this won't suit all time zones and apologise if this impacts you. Following this pilot, we plan to extend the scope and timing so we can include all members in all countries in our next event.
We are holding 3 facilitated sessions covering:
The main sessions will be videoed to create a resource library and participants will be encouraged to continue the discussions offline (see below), so the conversation does not have to end then!
If you are unable to attend the full programme but can only join us for one or two sessions, we’d welcome your participation too.
We will be meeting in Remo, an online tool made up of virtual work spaces. In there, you will be able to take part in plenary sessions, break out discussions, and even network online. Remo started as a tool to help remote employees communicate well and improve their company culture, and they have evolved into an online conference space. You can check out the tool here: https://remo.co/conference/
We are also piloting the use of an online communication space, using Slack, a tool for online communication. We’ll be using Slack to enable AOCS members to network the week before the event, and to continue those conversations started at the event.
We will provide instructions on how to use these tools before the event.
This virtual conference is free to AOCS members.
We also have a limited number of places for those non-members who wish to get involved and see what we are up to.
Please register on Eventbrite even if you can only attend in part.
Come and be curious, be prepared to 'play' a little with the concepts and to share your views and ideas in small groups, etc
You’ll need a stable broadband signal, preferably whilst you are in one place rather than travelling
