The FLANZ Award was shared between two equally deserving projects in 2021. As part of the Award recipients are asked to let FLANZ members know how the prize contributed to their research or professional development. We look forward to sharing that with you in the near future. Thank you to everyone who submitted.
Feedback from the FLANZ 2021Conference has been overwhelmingly positive, thank you. That said, there is still a lot we can do to improve.
Delegates have endorsed the blended approach to conferencing trialled at the FLANZ 2021 Conference.
Feedback from the conference survey has, overall, been very positive. That is not to say we got it right first time. There is much we can do to improve our communications and enhance the scope of the presentations.The most encouraging feedback has been the overwhelming endorsement of the blended conference mode. The approach, which brought together five venues across three online meeting spaces, was a hit with delegates. Feedback also indicates the MC, Greg Ward, was the special factor that brought the concept home. A key learning from this experience has been the importance of dedicated coordination and facilitation for each blended space.
