Originally presented February 10, 2021

Presenting can be daunting in a face-to-face setting - now imagine having the same expectations but in an online environment.

Tiffini Travis brings over a dozen years' experience teaching librarians how to present in public settings. This presentation is designed to help you translate presenting in-person into a Zoom environment.

By the end of this session you will have practical tools to present online, engage the audience, improve presentation skills (for both in person and online) and enhance your image via webcam.
