Successful Tips for Presenting at the 2020 FAEA Virtual Annual Conference

Dr. Jackie Henson-Dacey, President 

  1. Remind participants to ‘mute’ themselves and to use the chat box for questions/comments.
  2. Prepare a PowerPoint slide that provides the participants with the title and overall purpose (goal) of your workshop/forum/discussion
  3. If your session is providing information only (vs. hands-on activity/workshop) then make sure your slide layout is clean and simple throughout your presentation. You might want to include the FAEA logo in the corner of each slide. If your slides have too much visual information they will be too confusing for the viewers.
  4. Focus on bullet lists vs. extended sentences of information. Remember, the slide is just an aid in your presentation.
  5. Avoid hyperlinks and video clips in your presentation (as Zoom can be slow at times)
  6. Create a final slide (ending) to thank participants and provide them with an opportunity for Q & A (check your chat for questions). Please add your name and contact information on the slide.

 

  • If you have a hands-on session (workshop) and would like participants to create during the session, please present an opening slide with title/purpose of workshop and discuss what supplies they should have ready and use either a document camera or a short video of your step-by-step instructions on how to do the activity.
  • When sharing a short video (from your desktop), please click the ‘share computer audio’ box and the 'optimize for video' box on the lower left-hand side of the ‘share screen’ function. Another option is to play your video and speak over the video as it plays.
  • Allow for participants to have an opportunity to work on the project (20-30 mins).
  • Ask selected participants to share their work and comment on the process – they can share by holding it up to the camera on their desktop computers (or cell phone).
  • Create a final slide (ending) to thank participants and provide them with an opportunity for Q & A (check your chat for questions). Please add your name and contact information on the slide.
