Each presentation will be streamed via Microsoft Teams. Select the "Join" button underneath the specified presentation on the Home, Event Schedule or Presentation/Workshop tab.

Q: Can I stream the presentation from my phone or tablet?
Yes, you can, but you will need the Microsoft Teams application pre-downloaded on to your device!
Q: Do I need to log on ahead of the presentation start time?
While it is not necessary, there may be some brief set up that your computer requires before you stream the presentation, so logging on 10 minutes before the presentation starts is recommended.

No, if you don’t have the Microsoft Teams app, a web browser instance will automatically open up.

A camera & microphone are not necessary to participate in each workshop. However, please note that because you are streaming, you will need a strong internet connection.
