We've moved into a highly virtual way of working this year, which has prompted a hard shift in how we meet and present information to people. This time last year people would have said "what's Zoom?", but now it's a household name.
If you haven't had the opportunity to develop your skills in virtual presentations, now is your chance with our "Rock Your Virtual Presentation" webinar series. If you participated in the first offering of this series, you can attend this one, too! Things will have been updated based on your input, and maybe you want a refresher.
In addition to 7.5 hours of instruction time, you'll also receive additional resources, templates, and learning activities each week.
Part One: Content Development & Delivery (Tuesday, May 11, 1:30pm-3:00pm PST)
Part Two: The Technical Stuff (Tuesday, May 18, 1:30pm-3:00pm PST)
Part Three: Zoom Alternatives & Other Tools (Tuesday, May 25, 1:30pm-3:00pm PST)
Part Four: Spread the Word (Tuesday, June 1, 1:30pm-3:00pm)
Part Five: Lights, Webcam, Action! (Tuesday, June 8, 1:30pm-3:00pm)

These sessions will be recorded
Internet access, a computer or cellphone, and functioning speakers/headphones are required. A webcam or phone camera is ideal but not required.
Come as you are to these sessions, your comfort is a priority. If you feel more comfortable not having video on, that's okay. If you need to snack, doodle, or fidget, that's also okay!
