Complete Streets by Design Lunch & Learn: Mar 29

After an animated and rewarding year of design, consultation, meetings, and debate, Complete Streets by Design is a wrap! Please join TCAT on Thursday March 29th from Noon to 1 p.m. for a special lunch & learn session as we unveil this useful resource.

Webinar log-in instructions below.

To attend in person, the seminar location information is:
Knowledge Innovation & Technology Lab
Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto
252 Bloor St. West, 3rd Floor
(directly above St. George subway/Bedford exit)

With funding from the Toronto Community Foundation, TCAT produced the Complete Streets by Design resource to show how six Toronto streets could look and feel if redesigned as Complete Streets. Applying established Complete Streets principles to Toronto streets in both urban and suburban contexts moves the concept of safe and comfortable streets for all road users from an abstract goal to imaginable reality. By providing visually compelling before and after street sections, plans, and photo collages, this tool is intended to be useful for professionals and the general public alike.

Elana Horowitz, Chris Hardwicke and Nancy Smith Lea, members of the design and advisory team, will present what was learned throughout the process and highlight how the final product can be used. Copies of the resource will be available free of charge to anyone who attends.

IMPORTANT – Is your Computer Ready?
If this will be your first webinar using Wimba, please make sure you do the following in advance of the meeting in order to prepare for the session. It will only take a few minutes to set up but it’s best to do it in advance to ensure your computer is set up and ready to go.

Pop-up window requirements and troubleshooting
Setup Wizard requires enabling pop-up windows to work for the WIMBA website.

You may get a message that says your browser does not allow pop up boxes. To change this it is usually at the top of that message and on the bottom of the tool bar of your browser where you can look for a little box that you can click on it and it will give you some options. Choose the option “always allow pop-ups from Wimba”. If you choose the “temporarily allow” option you will have to do this on an ongoing basis and it will get very annoying. Choosing “always allow pop ups from Wimba” will not open up pop ups from other web sites so you do not need to worry about that.

Once you allow pop up windows from Wimba, Setup Wizard ensures your computer is all set to allow you to see the visuals, chat and view recordings.  This will require a few clicks, (first on the start button and then a few next button clicks and maybe a run button click if any Java software is required for your computer). The Java application is from a trusted site and you need not worry about running it.  For those of you with overzealous IT departments, you should not have problems getting the permission you need to install it because it is required for a number of websites and is pretty standard.

If you will not be using a headset with microphones do not worry about testing out your microphone just go to the next button and click it.

You will only need to do this for the first webinar on Wimba, after that your computer will be all set to go for future webinars.
