*NEW* Virtual Classroom for regional and remote students
Our virtual classroom consists of an actual classroom with a facilitator teaching the class to students who are either in the classroom with the facilitator or dialled in remotely to the class session. Presentation slides and other digital files can be presented during the training session using the Zoom platform and the student may either focus on these resources or the facilitator. The class can also view the students who are remotely dialled into the class session and can interact with them in the same manner as in a classroom.
For students located in the same city or town as the facilitator, we recommend they attend the classroom with the facilitator, and those who are located outside of the actual classroom to form their own groups in the same city or town and then remote into the virtual classroom together from the same physical location, e.g. meeting room or training room.
Each physical location will require the following set-up:
- Sufficient internet connection – Zoom is successful on a 4G network. Any network better than 4G will enhance the student’s experience;
- A PC with a web-camera, microphone and the capacity to run the Zoom application to allow the facilitator to better interact with students in the same manner as a traditional classroom; and
- Sufficient sized monitor or screen to support the number of students in the room.
We use Zoom Room to allow the greatest outreach of students and to provide another avenue for people wanting to undertake training without the excessive cost of flights and accommodation necessary to send a person to a capital city to undertake face-to-face training. We use this technology to help those in remote locations who would normally miss out on further education because they are unable to either fund or access the training they need to perform their work better.
There is an extra fee for this option - $150.00 (incl. GST) per day. This fee covers all remote students for the day. If you are interested in this option, please contact IPAA NSW on 02 8066 1900.
The class size is a minimum of twelve up to a maximum of eighteen participants only.
Individual bookings are a per person cost. Group bookings are a per person cost for a group of three or more participants from the same agency.
Course delivery is subject to meeting minimum panel size (12–18). Where a minimum panel is not achieved, registered attendees will be advised no later than one week prior to the course start date.
In-House Course Delivery
In-house training can also be provided directly to your organisation. Maximum class size of 18 applies. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information including the fee schedule.
