Online Workshops - Format and Joining Instructions


For Term 1 (2020/21), ADP workshops will be taking place online rather than face to face; and the format has changed accordingly.

Joining Instructions

We will be using Microsoft Teams to run the workshops. Please use this link to request to join the ADP Team.

Within the ADP team, there will be a channel for each session, with the workshop name and date in the title. Please check the correct channel for your session. Under the Posts tab, you will find a greeting message and (in most cases) some questions. Under the Files tab, you will find resources to work through before the meeting.

Check the channel at or just before the workshop start time. The facilitator will be monitoring the channel, so feel free to post and introduce yourself, or ask questions. A Meet Now call will be opened at the time the workshop is scheduled to start; please join it.

Note for APP PGR students

Online ADP workshops do count towards your CPD requirement. A register will not be taken; so long as you are present in the main video call for the meeting, your attendance will be recorded.
