The Online Conference Series is being delivered on AITPM's new engagement platform . This new platform has been created to deliver video content and facilitate engagement between members and speakers via discussions and live Q&A sessions. Held over several weeks, the format gives participants time to view the presentation records in their own time, post comments and questions in the discussion threads, and then listen and engage with the live Q&A sessions (which will also be recorded to watch back later).
Each week the video content for a Group of presenters will be released. A notification will be posted in the Discussion thread and the videos will be contained in a labeled folder in the Resources folders. Participants can view each of the presentations in their own time. They then head to the Discussion tab, select the relevant post under the Thread Subject and post their questions for the speakers. The deadline for questions for that Group session will be the Tuesday prior to the Thursday live session.
Our Group Moderators and speakers will the review all the questions and prepare for the Live Q&A session, which will be be held on Thursday. The Online Conference Series Events tab contains the schedule of live events. As a virtual "attendee" of the Online Conference Series participants are automatically registered for these events on the platform and the event login details for Zoom will be available in the event details and calendar invite. Participants will also receive an email reminder prior to the event. The Live Q&A sessions will be recorded and will be posted in the Resources in the days following the event for those that were unable to attend.
As a Member of the Online Conference Series community participants will receive email notifications of posts in this community by AITPM and other members of the community. In addition to the discussion threads about the presentations, there may also be discussion threads where participants can engage with our sponsors as well as some networking threads. For general comments and discussion on matters outside the Online Conference Series, AITPM members also have access to join other communities.
We hope that participants will enjoy this new experience and take the opportunity to engage with their peers via this platform.
