It takes a village of volunteers to organise a conference like the Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education (VWBPE) Conference. Our volunteers come from a wide array of backgrounds, countries, and cultures. We need dozens of individuals like you, to support everything we do at the conference from greeting participants to mentoring presenters to streaming presentations. Not only do you get to help us promote and share educational approaches in Virtual Worlds, but you have an opportunity to connect with thousands of conference goers across multiple platforms.

The 2017 conference celebrates our 10th anniversary with the theme “Legacy”. VWBPE has created a legacy around the proposition that building a professional community of individuals who hunger for innovation is possible without the constricting walls of physical space. As a volunteer, you become an important part of this legacy.

VWBPE 2017 will be held March 29th to April 1st. If you would like to help at the upcoming conference, we would be delighted to have you. We are calling for volunteers to fill the following roles:

  • Hosts (formerly known as Meet & Greet)
  • Mentors
  • Quadrivium Facilitator
  • Quadrivium Assistant
  • Technical Support
  • Volunteer Media Stream Team

Training for Volunteers will begin in mid-March for most positions. One of our team will contact you, with information about training, schedule sign-ups and a couple of Volunteer Committee events you are invited to attend.

For more information about each role and to sign up, the Call for Volunteers is up and available for you. If you still need more information, you can use the form at the bottom of that page and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have about volunteering for VWBPE.

We cannot do this without our Wonderful Volunteers! Come join the fun!
