OT24Vx

If you haven’t heard of OT24Vx you’re in for a treat! Well what is it you ask me? I’ll quote the website and let them explain:

It is a free, online, 24 hour conference for occupational therapists.
OT = Occupational therapy
24=24 hours
Vx=Virtual exchange

Whilst acknowledging the value of global connections for occupational therapists, we noticed that many OTs miss out on traditional avenues of connecting at conferences due to cost and time required. For some OTs a conference could cost as much as a whole year’s salary, but the need for equitable access to knowledge transfer opportunities is vital in a profession that continues to grow. In a world where technology is becoming more and more ubiquitous many occupational therapists are gaining techno-confidence. Thus the idea of designing and delivering a 24 hour free real time online conference for knowledge sharing was born.
We chose World OT Day in 2010 as our first OT24Vx and following its success we have run one annually since then. The  OT24Vx has run in collaboration with the World Federation of Occupational Therapists since 2014.

You can read all about it at their website and learn what you can do to prepare yourself for the upcoming conference in November!

ENOTHE

Last fall at enothe 2014 at the HAN university Nijmegen we had two meetings. At these meetings there were students from all over Europe. Our plan was to build a European student platform. With the use of a voting system we’ve decided on the form and purpose of this platform. We want a European network where we can talk to each other and learn from each other. For this to happen we’ve decided we need a website with a forum.

And now there is one.
