TRANSFORMING HOW WE OPERATE
We're now fully online.
Unprecedented times call for unprecedented actions. We've embarked on our biggest digital transformation. We have fast-tracked our move to digital platforms to ensure that we can continue to offer fun and high quality French language learning to our students and members. Starting from Monday 23 March, 100% of our courses for adults, teens and children, our workshops, story time, book club and private tuition will be conducted online.
Learning while in self-isolation
The AF team has been using and evaluating a number of online video conferencing and learning platforms. We - like UQ and many other institutions - have opted to use Zoom. Zoom has fantastic features that allows teachers to present, students to share and for small group exercises in virtual break-out rooms. During the week of 23 March we are offering over 50 sessions demonstrating the new platform to help everyone to become more comfortable in this new environment. We will also offer follow-up sessions for anyone who needs a little more support and practice before venturing into their classroom.
Term 2 fast-tracked with classes starting Monday 6 April
We're conscious that many of our students are already self-isolating and that government restrictions are likely to require everyone to significantly limit their movements over the coming weeks. To support this, we have brought forward our Session 2 start date to Monday 6 April for beginners and Tuesday 14 April for higher levels.
A reprised French Film Festival
We do not have dates confirmed yet, but we will be working with Palace Cinemas to confirm a reprised '31.5' edition of the French Film Festival late this year. French Films on the big screen are wonderful, however, in the meantime, we're happy to provide access to a number of online movie resources to our students and members.
We're working hard to innovate and to stay connected with our staff, students and members. Many people have asked how they can support Alliance during this time. Our answer is simple: Stay health, renew your membership, and enrol for Session 2.
Your support through membership and signing up to online classes during this crisis is appreciated and helps to keep us all together.
