Going virtual doesn’t mean the conference will be any less interactive! We have added a number of ways for attendees to connect and engage with one another, some of these include:

  • Virtual Meetings: giving higher education experts the opportunity to engage with fellow educators in “face-to-face” meetings
  • Panel Discussions and Breakout sessions: unite with some of the world’s best educational minds to explore solutions to some of the sector’s most pressing challenges, opportunities, and myths
  • Networking Lounge & Speed Networking Sessions: meet international colleagues from global institutions and collaborate for future success

All networking experiences will be facilitated by our virtual conference partner, who will cultivate a space designed to replicate the ambience of a face-to-face event.

Its networking features will include:

  • Lobby and lounge: Their virtual lobby will serve as the central point of engagement for EduData Summit (EDS) 2021. Participants can receive a first impression of the event, interact with other participants and move into other collaboration and/or content spaces;
  • Auditorium: The platform’s auditorium will provide all delegates with instant access to live or on-demand conference content. It will also offer delegates the opportunity to participate in polls, surveys, and other forms of real-time engagement with that content.
  • Exhibition: Our platform provider will ensure that all delegates are able to liaise with our individual showcases. By including content-display modalities including video screens and file access spaces, delegates will also have outstanding access to presenter resources

All registered delegates will be given a brief tutorial on how to make the most of the platform’s features in the weeks leading up to the event…
