REGISTER NOW for webcast public health journal club in english and spanish thursday 8th december 4pm british time

You are invited to take part in a free webcast public health journal club at 4pm (British time) on Thursday 8th December. Although the webcast is free you need to register and obtain a password by Tuesday 6th December 1pm (British time). Please register at the Univerisity of Plymouth, Faculty of Health and Social Work webcast page http://www.plymouth.ac.uk/pages/view.asp?page=4832. Registration is now open. When you register you will be sent a username and password to enable you to log on to the live web cast. You will be asked for a few basic items of information to help us evaluate use of this webcast.

To view the webcast on Thursday 8th December you will need to log on from a computer that has: Sound, Internet Explorer 5 or above, Flash.

The webcast is part of a University of Plymouth trial of new webcasting software called GoodMood. When participating in the webcast you will be able to watch the presenters, their presentation slides, make comments, or vote on questions asked, all on the same webpage.

This is the second in a series of English-Spanish Public Health journal clubs. The first pilot can be viewed at http://video.plymouth.ac.uk/tvb/spanglish_bb.wmv . We will again be reviewing four recent papers in public health. Note however that there will be a number of changes from that initial ‘trial run’ including the use of the new software. We will also alternate the way we intersperse the English and Spanish to get your views on the best method.

We look forward to your participation in this event. Please remember to register if you think you may take part.

Best wishes
