Ah, yes. I was. I forgot.  Oops! I even wrote it down and have since found my notes from yesterday and the link to the VRT Academy. Looking forward to today.

Hi Heike.  Thank you so much for uploading the recordings so quickly from yesterday (Fri), handily linked to via the program. I presume they will go into the archive recording section at a later date.  What a fabulous permanent PD resource, by the way.

Looking forward to the start of the round table! :)
I am working this week-end so I need to plan my time-table carefully ... is there any way to get the details for the Sunday contributions?

I'm looking forward to attending as many sessions as possible over the next 3 days and blogging about each one that I manage to attend.  Got my program printed off.
