What are Virtual Master Classes?
Virtual Master Classes are highly interactive sessions, where speakers can elaborate on and answer questions about their presentations from a previous EAN Congress. As the number of participants is limited to 30, to foster and increase interactivity, these sessions remain an incredibly sought-after experience for RRFS members.
Due to the highly interactive nature of these sessions, direct recordings are not able to be made available to participants afterwards. Each session is a completely unique and tailored experience for the limited number of participants – and is something that should not be missed!
Although registration was immediately sold out upon promotion of the Masterclass, we have started to notice a trend of registered participants not showing up to the sessions and not informing EAN eLearning beforehand. This is very disappointing.
When registering, please bear in mind that the speakers have worked incredibly hard on their sessions. Registration works on a first come, first served basis, and when the class is not fully occupied on the date of the session, we are unable to fill these spots on such short notice. Therefore, we have found the need to penalise registrants who do not attend and do not notify eLearning beforehand.
Beginning with the second half of 2022, all unnotified no-shows will be unable to register for another Virtual Master Class for the next six months. Once this time has passed, all previous no-shows are more than welcome to register again. However, we must emphasise that EAN eLearning must be informed beforehand if a registrant is unable to attend – no reason required.
The Virtual Master Class schedule for the second half of 2022 will be based on presentations from the 2022 EAN Congress and will begin in late summer. As these sessions are directly based on EAN Congress content, the topics and speakers will not be decided until after the Congress has taken place. Therefore, if there is a specific presentation you would like to see a Virtual Master Class for – be sure to contact EAN eLearning (eLearning@ean.org) and let us know!
