A online seminar is an audio-visual presentation that is broadcast on the Internet. It is an interactive process which uses rich media (PowerPoint, audio, video, streaming, etc.). You can ask questions, send questions in advance, rank the presentation and provide feedback. You can watch the recorded presentation again. Both audio and video are delivered through your computer. This allows you to participate in the seminar at your leisure.
An online workshop is a series of online modules that are pre-recorded and which can be watched at your convenience. Each module is supported by audio-visual and downloadable materials. Depending on the workshop, you will be asked to fill in questionnaires, do some coursework, etc. You can use email to send questions in. Facilitators will also stay in touch by email. Some workshops will also include web-based live supervision and consultation to participants.
We are currently developing our programme of workshops. Join us and we will let you know when they are available.
