All IBICUS virtual workshops will be delivered using ZOOM Sign up now for your free ZOOM BASIC account.
Access to virtual workshops will be by invitation link only. This link must not be shared with others.
The invitation link to your workshop will be sent to you by your workshop leader 2-3 days before your workshop starts. Please check your spam folder if you have not received the link, before you contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You will need a laptop or desktop computer sufficiently well connected to WIFI to run Zoom and a good internet connection throughout the workshop. The workshop will not be recorded and cannot be provided at a later stage if you are unable to connect during any or all of the workshop.
Please ensure that you have everything you need for the duration of each session before you start including your laptop charger, mobile phone (set to silent), pen and paper, water and anything else that you might need.
These workshops are fully authorised and certified by the IBO and our virtual workshops are delivered by experts who are fully trained by the IB. You must attend all sessions to receive your certificate. Your certificate will be emailed to you after the workshop.
During the workshop there will be large group activity and discussion, small group activity and discussion (using the ZOOM Breakout Rooms feature where your workshop leader will “send” you to a virtual room with other participants for a short period of time) and individual activity.
Yes, there will be 30 minutes of breaks during the 4.5 hours each day.
Will I get a timetable? Yes. Your workshop leader will send you an Agenda with the schedule for each day so that you know when the breaks will fall.
We ask that you keep your video on throughout the workshop but your audio off unless you wish to speak. This avoids everyone hearing things going on in your background! If you wish, you can change your background, adding a virtual background so that other participants cannot see the room that you are in.
No element of any virtual workshop may be recorded or captured in any way or shared with anyone outside of the workshop. The workshop leader will not share any recorded videos of the workshop with you.
If you cannot attend the workshop and give us at least 48 hours’ notice before the workshop, you can swap someone else in in your place at a cost of £50. If you (or your replacement) do not attend the workshop for any reason, we cannot offer a refund or deferred place on another workshop.
IBICUS cannot be held responsible for any loss of connectivity. We strongly advise participants to locate themselves in the most suitable place with the most reliable WIFI connection for the workshops. We also suggest that you should be able to hotspot to a mobile phone and/or have an alternative location e.g. your place of work or a local café or hotel with good WIFI connection.
