GROUP LICENCES FOR ONLINE PRE-RECORDED FILMED VERSIONS OF THE SESSIONS / EVENINGS (4 weeks’ access)

SCHOOLS / TEACHERS: You may have tried to book a session or evening with Dr Prue Salter in Sydney only to discover that she is pretty much fully booked all of the time. Or maybe you are from a school in another state or country and could not find a time when Dr Salter could travel to you. These online pre-recorded filmed versions mean that your school does not have to miss out.

This group licence is applicable if you wish to show the online pre-recorded filmed videos of Dr Prue Salter’s sessions to a Year Group of students or email the link to the parents or students of a Year Group at your school so they can watch them at home. In most of the video series the group licence gives access for one Year Group for four weeks (except Year 12 where they have access the whole year) and includes links to download the handouts and the slides.

The video series that are currently available for schools are listed below. The style of each online session varies but may be a mix of Dr Salter speaking, videos of slides with voice-overs or slideshares so attendees can control the time they spend on that section. There are also handouts, links and reference materials included with each session.

Just let us know which session you are interested in, which year level you would like to have access, and your start date for access. Pricing is listed below in each section and we also have pricing for multiple year groups to access the videos as the numbers of potential users affect the streaming costs.

Temporary access is available for teachers only to see if they want to purchase access for their school.

Why not a live webinar so participants can ask questions? Webinar research shows only around 10-30% of people who sign up for a webinar actually attend it live. By giving schools access for a month, parents and students can watch the videos at a time that suits them. It is also very difficult to absorb all of the information from a webinar in one go. The videos from Dr Salter’s sessions are broken up into bite sized chunks so they do not need to be viewed all in one go plus it is easy to go back and re-watch a particular section. As to questions, Dr Salter has been running these seminars for a long time and her presentations are very comprehensive and address all the issues that have been raised with her over the years. Even in a live seminar she rarely gets questions these days. However those viewing the videos are urged to email Dr Salter directly if they do have any questions they feel have not been answered in the video series. In a live webinar the numbers just keep dropping off at the end as everyone has to listen to questions they are not interested in! Having experimented with webinars a number of years ago, Dr Salter has found for the information she covers, bite sized video chunks with access for a month works best.

WHY OFFER AN ONLINE PRE-RECORDED FILMED SESSION TO YOUR SCHOOL COMMUNITY?

  • FLEXIBLE: Unlike a webinar, families don’t have to be available for a fixed time slot. Families have a month to access the video series at a time that suits them.
  • EFFECTIVE: Unlike a live seminar, students and parents do not have to try and absorb everything in one go, videos are in bite sized chunks and they can review as often as they like during the access period.
  • EASY: All teachers have to do is nominate a start date and forward the email provided to parents, nothing more to do! Families download the handouts and follow up materials and resources directly from the online video page and can email their questions directly to Dr Salter (which also reduces the load on teachers).
  • ACCESSIBLE: Prior to this Dr Salter has had a long wait list of schools wanting to run sessions. This allows all schools to support families and students to improve the way they study and learn at home at any time that suits them regardless of where the school is located. No need to worry about travel costs or to have to wait until a date may become available, schools can access expert advice from Dr Salter now at any time.

1. Dr Salter’s Maximising Results Support Group for Year 12 (NSW only, group licence version)

This video series consists of three 30-40 minutes study skills sessions (broken into bite-sized chunks) that are released each term so it is ongoing, targeted support for Year 12.

NOTE: You can add your Year 12 students to Dr Salter’s support group at any time during the year as they will still get huge value even if they only watched the videos about planning after the Trials/Mocks. Of course it is best if you join up during Term 1 to make the most of the support.

  • Year 12 Video Series Term 1: Setting up for success this year, what should students be doing?
  • Year 12 Video Series Term 2: Improving the way students study, planning for the exams next term.
  • Year 12 Video Series Term 3: What to do before and after the Trials/Mocks, and how to make a study plan for the final exams in Term 4.

Price:

Cost is AUD$1500 incl. GST (total cost for access to all of the three video series above). The access for this series is ongoing throughout the year, not for just 4 weeks like the other online sessions on this page. The price is the same regardless of when you join up as students will be able to access the earlier series.

If you would like your Year 12 group to be a part of this support group, email to request access, then what happens is as each video is released we send you a link that you forward to your Year 12 students – very simple.

Access to this video series helps to increase the circle of support for Year 12 and reduce the load on the teachers, school and parents.

 

FEEDBACK ON THE FIRST DAY OF YEAR 12 VIDEO SERIES RELEASE

Thank you very much Dr Salter I appreciate you giving your time to give me feedback on my notes. I watched your videos this morning they’re very good. It made the whole situation seem manageable.

Student

Many, many thanks. Your series is very informative and will really help us.

Parent

Thank you for your generous and sensible advice to our students and their families.  I really must stress that we received a significant number of grateful emails from parents when we sent the initial email informing them of the videos to come.  This is such important work that you do. We really appreciate the resources and support from you as we truly believe this is a huge team effort from all parties – internal and external agencies- to help support the students adjust to the current environment.

All you have to do is to choose your start date for the month’s access, email us the date and we will send you the link for your school which you then forward to the students. Easy!

Topics covered include the following:

  • Time management skills:
    – working effectively at home

EMAIL FEEDBACK FROM A PARENT

Dear Prue, 

My daughter and I attended your seminar when she was in year 7 (she’s now doing Year 12!) and this year, with my son in year 7, we have had the opportunity to watch the online version.  While both were valuable, I have particularly appreciated the online version as we have been able to watch it at his pace. We pause each section and discuss how it relates to his life before moving on. And it goes without saying that your tips in a video are far more persuasive than any suggestions from boring old mum.

Thanks! Jen
