Karten Network webinars and event

This Autumn we decided to pilot the use of GoToWebinar to run a series of themed webinars. In addition to the webinars, we had one “physical” event at Beacon in Wolverhampton. A summary of the sessions held is shown below:

Thursday 23 November 16.00 – 17.00 Assistive Technology Assessment presented by Fil McIntyre, Lead Assistive Technologist, Beaumont College.

Thursday 30 November 10.30 – 15.00 A Karten Network Event was held at Beacon Centre in Wolverhampton alongside Beacon’s own Tech Week. This gave colleagues the opportunity to access Karten Network specific content and to experience Tech Week too. We are grateful to Beacon for hosting the event.

Initial feedback indicates that colleagues have appreciated the flexibility offered by the webinars. We aim to improve and expand our activities, but can only do that with your input. If you have any ideas for sessions, or indeed can offer to present please contact Dawn.
