Webinars for Network Partners

We run a variety of free, interactive webinars about the Be Connected Network. Please click the buttons below to read more about each webinar and to register your interest.

Network Partner Skillshare

Some of you have either began or are planning to begin delivering face-to-face digital skills sessions to your communities. We know a lot of you have questions, thoughts or ideas on what this might look like and how to do this safely, so we're arranging a time for Network Partners to get together and discuss them.

This skillshare webinar is an opportunity for you to talk about this together. We will facilitate the skillshare and share some initial ideas about how you can reintroduce delivering digital skills programs face-to-face, and you’ll have the opportunity to share your ideas, too.

Note: If the webinar is ‘full’ we will schedule additional ones so that everyone has the opportunity to attend if they would like to.

Special Update: Be Connected Digital Marketing Campaign

Good Things Foundation is launching a digital marketing campaign to help raise awareness about the support available to older Australians through the Be Connected program. We will be letting friends and family of older Australians who need help to improve their digital skills know about the free courses available on the Be Connected Learning Portal.

This special half hour update for members of the Be Connected Network will talk you through:

  • Who we are trying to reach
  • Where we will be advertising online
  • What we will be saying
  • What we learnt when preparing our campaign about promoting Be Connected to older Australians
  • How we will refer learners to Network Partners

You will have the chance to ask questions and hear from Good Things Foundation’s Marketing Manager, Grant Chapman, and Head of Communications and Engagement, Cassandra Strakosch.
