Description:  As COVID-19 continues to test us mentally and physically, many of us are spending extended hours in front of our computer screens. Gyms are closed and it feels like there’s no time to exercise. Join me for an hour of “Sit & Stretch” where we’ll be doing Chair Yoga. We will breathe, twist, and release those scrunched up shoulders, all without leaving our desks. No prior yoga experience is needed, this is for everyone. 

Presenter: Carla Mostert is a Junior Lecturer of Drama and Performance at the University of Kwazulu Natal, Pietermaritzburg. Passionate about the arts, theatre, and most recently unpacking her whiteness.

10 December 2020: Are conferences really changing?

Time converter at worldtimebuddy.com

Descriptions: Our range of experiences of conferences is likely to include excitement, stimulation, inspiration, and connection, but also sometimes boredom, disconnection, a sense of exclusion, and especially this year some technological stress. 2020 has become the year of online conferences. Many well established face-to-face conferences went online as the COVID-19 pandemic completely reconfigured the notion of when and how we meet. The proliferation of online conferences raises several issues including the range of online conference designs used, how these relate to good design practices for conferences in general, and how they relate to good design practices for online events.

In this webinar, Tony will engage participants in a critical and creative conversation about the nature and future of online conferences. The presentation will draw on the literature of face-to-face and online conference design, learning and research from the design of the e/merge conferences and online conferences held this year, reflections on participation in recent online conferences, and statements by designers of several pandemic provoked online conferences. This session will be an improved version of his mLearn 2020 keynote, which was voted best presentation in the conference. 

Presenter: Tony Carr, Convener of e/merge Africa and educational technologist in the Centre for Innovation in Learning and Teaching (CILT), University of Cape Town
