Platform & Presentation

What video conference platform will we use?

Zoom in webinar format.

Can we use polls?

Yes, please send your poll questions to Megan Webster for preloading into zoom.

Can I use a Powerpoint?

Yes, please make sure that it is in Widescreen format (16:9). We do not have a powerpoint template this year.

Can I advance my slides?

If you want to and can share your screen. We are also able to advance slides for you, if you prefer.

When is my Powerpoint due to CCMA organizers?

If you are using Powerpoint, please submit your final presentation by June 3, 2022.

Will there be some form of chat where people will be able to write comments and ask questions during the presentation? 

Yes, we will have chat open to all and Q&A for questions. We want to encourage as much dialogue as possible.

Who will facilitate Q&A from the audience?

A UWCC staff member or CCMA volunteer will facilitate or work with the moderator to ensure that everyone is on the same page for Q&A facilitation

Are you recording the sessions? How will recordings be shared?

We are recording workshop and plenary sessions and will make them available every evening to registered participants. We will host the recordings on UWCC’s YouTube Channel as Unlisted. This means that in order to view the video, participants will need the specific link and are not able to find the videos with a search.

What time should we be available the day of our session?

We ask that you be online and checked into your zoom session 30 minutes before you present. This gives us one last time to test sound and video quality, address any last minute issues or questions.

Conference Registration

All virtual presenters will receive complimentary registration to the virtual conference.

How do we register?

We will register you for the conference. When everything is set up we will publish the conference agenda in Whova and you will be able to see all of the conference content.
