When can I watch the lectures?  Online viewing will be available AFTER the event for all participants. Lectures presented by Edna Golandsky, Robert Durso and Mary Moran will be via Skype.

I'm not sure if I'll be in Brisbane for Feb 4-5, but I'd like to see the workshop. What should I do? Enrol as an in-person participant to ensure you have a seat. If you are not able to attend, you can watch the videos later online.
What if I enrol as an online-participant, but then change my mind and turn up on the day? Please let Therese know so that enough handouts are available. Last year, a number of online registrants came in person, and there were a shortage of handouts.

Where will the videos be available? You will be emailed with instructions as to how to view the lecture videos when the videos are available.

In this case, your own access to the online lectures will be removed.  Please contact Therese to confirm this.
