[iaoa-education] IAOA Education Committee Call
Z.Wood at greenwich.ac.uk
Tue Nov 3 12:32:29 CET 2015
Dear Education Committee members,
I would like to remind you that the next IAOA Education committee will take place tomorrow on Wednesday 4th November. I apologise for the short notice.
The details are as follows:
--> Wednesday, November 4th (see  for your local and city-based times)
08:00 PDT / 11:00 EDT / 12:00 BRT / 16:00 BST / 18:00 CEST & SAST
For this meeting we will use the conference bridge service available to IAOA, which for you as participants basically means to make a (free) Skype call to a specific Skype contact and enter a PIN number in order to join the respective conference call (U.S. landline numbers are
available as an alternative to Skype, but may be charged).
In addition, we use a free and public chatroom during the session as a second communication channel, where notes can be taken visibly for everyone and questions or comments may be stated in parallel to the oral discussion.
Please find below the specific call details together with the agenda proposal. First there is a summary of the call details, for quick access. After the agenda I have added slightly more detailed instructions on how to join the conference call.
Should any technical questions remain, please contact Frank . If you have comments or questions regarding the agenda or the meeting in general, please use the mailing list or contact Maria  and myself  directly.
Hoping for your availability and looking forward to the first meeting,
 Secretary, IAOA (Frank Loebe)
