PD via Skype

Ticking Mind is now offering its professional development workshops on Skype. Skype is an application that allows users to make free video calls via the internet, this includes group video calls of up to 10 people. Unlike other web conferencing tools, Skype is simple, fast and stable (i.e it is not prone to technical difficulties).

So how will PD via Skype operate? Firstly, there will be a calendar of workshops on offer (see below) which can be booked into via our normal online booking procedures (the Skype PD booking page is here).

Once you've booked, it's essential that you do two things:

1. Make sure that you have Skype downloaded on your computer (it's free software that needs to be installed). You can download Skype from here: http://www.skype.com/en/.

2. Via Skype, you must send a 'request contact' message to us at Ticking Mind. Your request contact message should include a list of the workshops you are 'attending'. To request contact from us, you simply need to search for our 'Skype' name - ticking.mind - on the Skype directory. Our Skype name will have this icon next to it:

Once you've requested contact with us, we accept your contact and add you to a new 'conversation' group for the Skype workshop. 5 mins before the workshop is scheduled to start, we click on the conversation group and everyone will be contacted at once. You just need to accept the call and off we go!

**Skype sessions can be accessed both by individual and groups. Individual: One teacher can watch the session on screen; Screenshare: Two or more teachers can watch/participate in the session using the one screen - the first price in the 'cost' column indicates individual price, the second price indicates the screenshare cost.
