As part of your studies, you will need to complete the module ‘Developing Competence and Capability (6NU551)’ which can be taken in the Summer trimester of either Year 1 or Year 2. As part of this module you will need to “attend” a virtual conference, this is a one-day event that uses Blackboard Collaborate Ultra. There is no cost for the conference and you will be asked to undertake a small amount of pre-event reading (journal articles, online material, perhaps watch a short video) and on the day use technology to join the conference.
