Our next meeting will begin by exploring a number of new websites and resources, many of which are FREE to access and download, before considering how we might promote diversity within geography and history.
The meeting will be held virtually on Friday 20th November, from 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm.
The charge will be just £25.00 and you will receive a recording of the event, as well as a copy of the accompanying MS PowerPoint presentation. (Should you be unable to attend the ‘live’ session, then you may wish to pay the fee and have access to a recording of the session, a copy of the chat feed, all the accompanying materials and the subsequent detailed blog post report to peruse at your leisure; feel free to ‘fire’ any questions at me via e-mail afterwards too.)
I will lead the session via Zoom and send you an invitation with a password to insert prior to entering the meeting.
As I have invested in a subscription to Zoom, I have access to the extra controls to ensure that it is as safe and secure as possible. This is a platform that is used by a huge number of businesses and organisations (some of you may well be very familiar with Zoom already).
Do let me know if you wish to attend or receive a copy of the recording and accompanying materials by Friday 13th November 2020 (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Try and relax and recharge your batteries over half-term!
