This year for the first time we will be hosting a virtual Policy Dialogue alongside the face to face conference in Delhi 18-20 November 2009. We hope to reach a wider audience, who will be able to follow the conference, in India and internationally, via the internet. English for Progress online goes live on 4 November. Read more
What are the features of English for Progress online?
Live streaming and recordings
We will be broadcasting ten plenary sessions live over the internet and recording seven parallel sessions. The live sessions will also appear as recordings after the live stream. Viewers will be able to visit a different page for each session where they can:
- View the live stream or recording
- Download the speaker’s presentation
- Write some comments on the session
- Read the speaker’s biography and abstract
The pages will remain live for some time after the conference, so that the discussion can continue.
We will also be capturing some less formal 'on the spot' interviews with delegates and speakers off conference in addition to some more formal interviews.
We will also have a photos page where we will be uploading photos of people, parts of the building, the food or anything that gives the viewer a flavour of the event.
Viewers will be able to interact with our English for Progress online bloggers, who will be covering the conference by posting their impressions on their blogs. We hope that these posts will help generate interesting discussions among delegates, speakers and our remote viewers.
