The Colleague 2 Colleague SIDLIT Steering Committee is excited to welcome you – in person or virtually – to the first Hybrid SIDLIT Conference. In today’s climate, when disagreement, divisiveness, and disruption seem inescapable, we will take this opportunity to focus on Getting Together, Staying Together, and Building the Future Together. Follow @SIDLIT for conference announcements and updates! Share your experience with #SIDLIT2023.
We have strategically selected the following cutting edge technologies to facilitate this event:
We recommend using a desktop or laptop computer with a high-speed internet connection. You may experience limitations on how you can participate from a Chromebook, tablet, or mobile device.
Audio and Video:
We encourage turning cameras ON during sessions. However, a webcam is not required to participate.
A USB headset microphone will produce the best quality audio, but is not required.
Sched Conference Platform:
We are using a conference platform called Sched. After you register for the event, you will receive an email inviting you to set up your account on Sched. Once your account is setup, you have access to all session information including in-person room numbers, Zoom links for virtual attendees, session descriptions and speaker bios. You can select the sessions that interest you to create your custom schedule.
All presentation sessions will be available via Zoom. You should go to your session in Sched and click the provided Zoom link. The moderator will make you a co-presenter in the meeting. Virtual and in-person presenters need to launch Zoom so that both virtual and in-person attendees can participate. Managing Your Presentation Information in Sched
Sched hosts the conference schedule and allows presenters to upload presentation files for attendees. Please make your Sched profile public so that attendees can learn about you and your experience.
- Edit Profile – Edit your biography, add a picture, or add contact information.
- Upload Presentation Files – Share your presentation files with attendees from Sched.
Presentations will be delivered using Zoom video conferencing so that both virtual and in-person attendees can participate. Each session will have a moderator who will run the video conference and help moderate questions. You will be able to share your screen and interact with virtual attendees through video, audio, and chat.
Consider involving your audience through polling, asking questions throughout the presentation, and using storytelling to relate to your audience.
- Sharing Content, Your Screen or a Second Camera
- Video Layout Options while Sharing Your Screen
- Managing Breakout Rooms
- Polling for Meetings
