Participate online

This year staff from across all three campuses can participate online in many of the key events of the day. There are three mains ways of virtually contributing to the 2012 Vice-Chancellor's Symposium.

1. Attend the keynote by video-link

Staff on the Albany and Manawatu campuses can join colleagues at 9:00am in the Video-linked Teaching rooms (AT4: Albany & GLB1.14 Manawatu) to view and then discuss the Vice-Chancellor's keynote presentation. There will be a facilitator in each room to welcome you and manage the discussion.

2. Participate from your office through Stream

Most of the online events and related rich media resources can be accessed through our dedicated Stream environment. In Stream you will be able to watch the Vice-Chancellor's keynote presentation using Mediasite and link to Adobe Connect in order to view and discuss posters in our virtual discussion room. Associate Professor Craig Prichard will be your facilitator over the course of the day and the online programme is described in more detail in Stream. Notably, there will be a suite of brief video interviews of staff talking about the theme and their posters which will be recorded on iPhones by a team of students from the College of Creative Arts. These interviews will be made available over the course of the day. Please note that we will be using the upgraded version of Stream which needs to be accessed through the following link:

• Login to the Vice-Chancellor's Symposium 

3. Contribute to discussions through your mobile device

Staff with smart phones and mobile devices (e.g., iPhones, iPads & Android devices) can join some of the online interactive sessions using the Adobe Connect app which is downloadable through iTunes or Google Play. Between 11:00 and 12:00 there will be an opportunity through Adobe Connect to view and discuss digital versions of the posters and video interviews. Then later in the day between 3:00 and 3:45pm you can join via the Connect app (or through Stream) an online breakout session which explores:

• What would a Massey model of Academic Scholarship look like?

• How should Massey University assess the outcomes and evidence of academic scholarship?

• How can Massey University foster, recognise and reward a greater breadth of academic scholarship?


We also encourage staff to post brief thoughts and responses to the questions being explored over the day via Twitter using the following hash code:
