Ken, no need to make special accommodations just for me. If this is something that you've been thinking about doing in general, then if allowing me to attend gives you that final push - great! But if the VC is the way that you were planning to go, then stay with the VC. The meetings are normally 11:30pm my time, so my attending any session may be slim. But I was going to make a concerned effort to attend the June or July ones if I was home (i.e., not traveling).
No need to do something special for me. I just have fallen out of contact with the VLN-C since we tried to get that common student survey (something I plan to return to once I get settled in my new position). I thought if I could be a fly on the wall of these sessions, it might be a good way to re-connect. I may try the call in via Skype for the June meeting (if folks don't mind).
You can also join via Audio only
- BUT it is an NZ landline number to ring as the alternative to the internal free call to the bridge ( the 0800 ) Dial: +64 4 495 1378 - using the above PIN
If you wished to schedule attendance a meeting could be set up and run through Adobe Connect which will allow video and audio (as well as many other online classroom tools)
OR, it is not the same as hearing and engaging with the conversation but the notes are a live document created during the meeting(so this time you might like to join us that way and we could plan a meeting that will allow for your future attendance
Just wondering if there is a way to attend the monthly meetings other than by using the VC? I don't think I'd be able to make the May one, but it would be nice to get more involved with the group from over here in North America is that was possible. So I was just curious if there was a way for someone like me to connect in without the VC equipment.
