Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up?
A link to the registration form will be emailed to all course participants on November 14th. The seven seats will be assigned on a first come first served basis, and subsequent registrants will be added to the waitlist. You do not need to have completed the course to register, but we do expect you to complete the course before the event itself.
What can I expect?
Presenter Jeff Wildenstein will facilitate an intimate conversation on Zoom with folks who have completed the course and desire a little more. This is an opportunity to network, share resources, compare notes, and talk about the shared experience of trying these practice strategies. While it might behoove you to look back at some of your answers to activities, you need not prepare anything specific. Undoubtedly, something in this conversation will spark your physical or mental memory. Come with an open mind, ready to support colleagues on their journey, and get some support yourself. All cameras on!
What are the requirements for signing up and participating?
Anyone who has registered for the course is eligible to sign up for the roundtable discussion using the form that will be emailed out on November 14th. The roundtable discussion is intended for participants who have completed the course or will complete it prior to the roundtable date, so please only sign up if you will have completed all of the modules by December 9th.
Can I sign up for the roundtable discussion if I haven't registered for the course yet?
The roundtable discussion sign up link will only be sent to people who have registered for Voicing: Strategies for Skill Growth. This includes people who are newly registered, are part way through the course, and people who have completed it.
Will this be offered again?
Yes! If there is enough interest (which we think there is), we are hoping to make this a regular event, giving course participants an opportunity to process the information in a group format, deepen their learning, and connect with a community of practice.
How many spots are available? What if I don't get in?
There will be seven seats available in this roundtable discussion that will be available on a first come, first served basis. Once the seats are filled we will create a waitlist. If seats become available, they will be offered to folks on the waitlist in the order they signed up. Additionally, people on the waitlist will be offered the first opportunity to sign up for the next roundtable discussion.
Will CEUs be offered?
Not at this time. Participants have indicated that they would benefit from rich discussion with a community of practice and are looking for a way to ensure accountability to complete the course. The goal of this roundtable discussion is to provide an opportunity to deepen and improve your practice with colleagues who are working towards similar goals.
What if I don't complete the course before the discussion?
We understand that you may sign up for the roundtable discussion with the intent of completing the course before December 9th (one of the benefits is that it gives you a deadline and a reason to finish!). We also understand that life happens, it’s a busy time of year, and your plans may change. If you have a seat in the roundtable discussion group and are not going to complete the course or can’t make it to the discussion, we kindly ask that you let us know as soon as possible so we can offer your seat to someone on the waitlist. We are happy to add you to the waitlist so you can have first crack at the next session.
Can I participate in more than one roundtable discussion?
Yes! We love the connections we form with participants during these discussions, and we would love to see you again! Just follow the process to sign up and remember that seats are first come, first served.
