The 24 Hour Virtual International Day of the Midwife is on May 5th 2010. The program is slowly coming together, but there's still time to get involved if you'd like to volunteer to organize or facilitate sessions.
There is no official theme as such so you're very welcome to present whatever topic you like, and use whatever online communication tool you feel comfortable with. At the moment there's a real mix of asynchronous and synchronous activities planned ranging from the publication of a poem to a live presentation about antenatal care.
Online technology and tools
If you'd like to run a live session...maybe present a paper, talk about your midwifery practice or run a discussion but you're not sure how to use the virtual classroom, just get in touch and we can support you to work out your technological issues.
If you want to keep up to date with the latest news about the program and what we're planning, please feel free to check out our Facebook fan page (you do not need a Facebook account to do this) or follow us on Twitter.
