Presenter's protocols and advice

Advice for all presenters 

Presenters are asked to join the stream where their session is 5 minutes ahead of the beginning of the session. Presenters should have their presentation open and ready to share from the computer they are presenting from. The Zoom stream administrator will announce the title of the session and then hand it to the presenter to complete any introductions.

 

Please leave time for questions. The stream administrator will repeat questions posted in the chat. Presenters are welcome to respond to questions posed in chat.

 

All times will be strictly adhered to as set out in the Programme

 

Presenting from a face to face venue

Presenters are asked to speak with the coordinator of the venue when they arrive. Please allow time for this introduction (satellite contacts here). We recommend you have your presentation on a data stick.

Your presentation will be managed so that you are presenting to the immediate audience face to face and presenting through the Zoom stream. Questions can come from the floor or from the Zoom chat. We recommend you repeat the question posed if it comes from the floor so that the online audience will hear it.

Poster Presentations

Poster presentations have been extended to 20 minutes. It is not necessary to use all of the time. Please have your poster ready to present (either by providing it to a venue or by having it ready on the computer you are presenting from).

The Presentations (sessions) will be recorded

The presentations will be recorded so please kindly turn off your camera should you not wish to be seen in the recording. The chat will not be published.

 

Presentations will be published to the FLANZ professional development website (not You Tube)  and will be view only (not downloadable). Initially, they will be available for conference delegates and FLANZ members only. After 12 months they will be made publicly available as part of the FLANZ Pathways for Professional Development in Flexible Learning.
