IDEA Pilot Webinar Series 2011
May 4 2011
IDEA's Pilot Webinar Series ran throughout Summer 2011- a new series was launched in mid-September 2011.Read about it here.
IDEA is excited to launch its series of online lunchtime webinars!
The aim of this series is to bring fresh ideas, new information and up-to-date commentary on global development to IDEA members.
Each webinar takes place on a Wednesday lunchtime from 1pm- 2pm. The webinars are FREE. We will aim to keep the numbers of participants at each webinar to about 20 to allow for questions and discussion. IDEA members will be given first preference. The format will be simple. Each webinar a guest presenter will talk for 15- 20mins. This will be followed by moderated Q&A.
To participate you will need access to a laptop with fast broadband.
The series kicked off on May 25th with Martin Jacques, discussing his recent book When China Rules the World. Mr Jacques is also a Guardian columnist and co-founder of think tank Demos.
