How to prepare for the conference

To ensure an optimal experience, we recommend preparing the following prior to the first day of the conference:

  2. Access to Each session will be streamed at using Vimeo’s streaming video platform. To test your access to Vimeo, you can sign up for a free course (Trauma-Informed Resilient Schools, Children of Trauma and Resilience) at and confirm you can see the course videos for the course at https://learn.starr.orgMore information on accessing your online content is available here.

IMPORTANT: The Starr team will be unable to troubleshoot any individual issues that arise regarding connectivity issues during the conference. If you have any questions or concerns prior to the conference, please contact

In addition, please ensure you have a comfortable space to settle into and move around in throughout each day. Much like a traditional conference experience, we will be building in breaks between sessions, but alongside that, make sure you have:

  • Access to a quiet, interruption-free environment (or as quiet of an environment as possible – for those with kids and pets, we understand this is easier said than done!)
  • The ability to sit and stand (whatever is most comfortable for you!), while still seeing your computer or TV screen (if you have the ability to cast/project to it)
  • Healthy snacks and beverages on hand, to keep your energy up.

In fact, approach this like you are creating your own comfort corner, and we trust your virtual experience will be a great one!
