Virtual 2020 Conservation Symposium: FAQs

Statistics Workshops (Monday 2 and 9 November)

The Statistics Workshops will take the form of Zoom webinars which will be accessed from www.conservationsymposium.com. Each workshop will be hosted separately, and delegates must login to the Dashboard and then check-in for each session from Programme - Proceedings (see TheConservationSymposium2020 AccessGuidelines v1.0.pdf). Delegates will be in the audience and will remain muted. They will be able to post questions using the Q and A box on Zoom and be able to raise their hands. They will also be able to comment on and upvote the questions from other delegates. The host (Freyni du Toit) and the presenter (Victoria Goodall) will be able to allow delegates to speak when necessary. The chat box should NOT be used for questions but rather for letting the host know if there are technical issues that need to be resolved.
