Virtual Conference Tips

Some items covered in the video

  • Download the Whova App: Find it on the home page on the bottom left.
  • Agenda: Our schedule is merely a suggestion, but please do watch our WELCOME video which will be the first video on your agenda for December 3rd. We’ll have lots of important information in that video. With participants coming from over 50 countries, we wanted to make the viewing experience easy and flexible for you. Watch on your own timeline. All videos will be ready to view early morning on December 3rd. So you can watch as scheduled, follow a strand and watch all those, or just pick and choose and watch in whatever order you wish, whenever you wish. 
  • Exhibitors: We will have live sessions with our exhibitors. These are written in the agenda and will be our only LIVE sessions. We have amazing sponsors who have a lot to offer our community. We hope you will visit with them live.
  • Career Fair: Click on the career fair button in Whova if you’re interested in finding a new opportunity. We have many schools that are advertising positions.
  • Certificate: After many hours of PD, you’ll want a certificate saying you attended SENIA 2021. We will send out a survey link on Sunday. Once you have filled in the survey, you’ll have access to a link to the password-protected certificate. 
  • Non-tech questions:  Contact on the Whova app under “Ask Organizers Anything.”
  • Whova emails: We asked Whova to not send you emails throughout the conference. If you find you are receiving too many, please reach out to them.

A watch party is a new way to enjoy a virtual conference. We learn more when we are together. By discussing theory, strategies, and best practice, we improve our insight and efficacy as professionals.

Hosting or facilitating a SENIA Watch Party is an opportunity to bring the networking and collaboration pieces that we all value, to this virtual conference.  Local Chapters (where the government permits it) can plan a one-day conference with SENIA International providing the content virtually. Breakout groups and networking time should be scheduled in.  This can also be done virtually through zoom breakout groups.  For more information, contact lori@seniainternational.org.  Our Watch Party Committee will support you! 

As a non-profit SENIA now has sponsors. Our sponsors have made it so we could invite multiple high-quality speakers while still keeping rates affordable. We cannot thank our sponsors enough for their support.

Our sponsors also greatly benefit from sponsorship as they can share their resources with our participants.
