Tech Needs/Requirements: Please sign in to your Zoom session no less than 30 minutes prior to your start time to ensure enough time for a tech check and any final setup needs. A tech volunteer will be in each session to assist you.

Tips for a Successful Session

Powerpoint Presentations/Slides: Each slide should include a small number of points in a large font that is easy to read by attendees. Dense content is impossible to read. Images that demonstrate a point are a plus.

Flow of presentations: It is helpful to participants to state in a few points at the onset what presenters seek to convey. This will help to focus the participation of attendees.

Make it interactive: We all know that people learn by participating. Please try to incorporate as much “audience” participation to the extent possible.

Keep to time: Please follow the time limits set for your presentation or performance. Sessions and performances have very short breaks in between time slots and we want to provide attendees the ability to “stop and stretch” as much as possible between Zoom sessions and still arrive at their next session on time.

Have Fun!
