Our National Education Officers’ Network had a short, online meeting by Zoom on Thursday 20th August, to allow for a catch-up with university education officers. While the network meetings usually involve both college and university officers, this August one was aimed at university officers only, as college officers already had our two-day That's Quality! training in August, and we were mindful of the significant time commitment which that already involved.
The next NEON meeting bringing together both college and university officers, as usual, will take place online on Wednesday 7th October - please all save that date for now (registration will open nearer the time).

The event hashtag, for use on Twitter, was #sparqsNEON
The event began at 11.00am and finished at 12.30pm. It was free to join.
As we were not constrained by venue size, there was no limit to the number of participants. However, participants were required to register in order that we could keep the event secure. This event was aimed at all student officers from Scottish universities with an education remit.
Online meeting security
The meeting was run using Zoom, with the following security process:
You do not need an account to join the meeting and you don’t need to download the app. Simply copy and paste the link you receive in your joining instructions directly into your browser. The link is not available on social media or our website and is sent by email only to those who have registered for the event. To ensure only those who have registered join the meeting, we ask that you do not share the link with anyone. If you are not an authenticated Zoom user (i.e. you don’t have an account) you will be asked to input a password to join the meeting. When you join, you will go to a “waiting room”, a member of sparqs staff will then admit only those who have registered. If the identity of a person is not known, they will not be admitted, so please enter your name on Zoom as the name you registered to attend.
