About this talk

Does it seem your inbox is bursting with announcements for webinars? With face-to-face conferencing ground to a halt during social distancing, professional development has transitioned to an almost entirely virtual experience. Unfortunately, it’s often an underwhelming and disappointing one. Monotone speakers. Loads of bullet point slides—and presenters who just read them—or notes that are drier than dust. Effective teaching skills do not always transfer to online presenting as evidenced in many webinars. We can do better. Session attendees will takeaway some basic skills and practices that can lead them to design and deliver more engaging webinars. One outcome of the coronavirus crisis is that webinars are likely to emerge as the standard for remote professional development for the foreseeable future. We all need to commit to making them a better user experience. Our colleagues deserve that much.
