Virtual Skills for the Long Haul

April 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Watch the April “Virtual Skills for the Long Haul” livestream here.

Over the last year, most of us have learned how to work in online environments, such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams. But many of these changes will stay with us long after the current pandemic is over. In our changed world, many job interviews, academic conferences, dissertation defenses, public lectures, and more, will all remain online. What skills will you need to succeed in this virtual world? How can learn to speak as comfortably and confidently into a camera as you now do in person? And how will expectations for you and your work change as a result? These expert panelists will go beyond the basics to talk about how to manage your technology and your own self-presentation for the virtual world ahead.

PLEASE NOTE: All Spring 2021 events will be live streamed via Microsoft Teams live events. UWM log-in required. Watching from a tablet or phone may require you to download the Microsoft Teams app. You may watch directly in your computer’s web browser. Captions are available in Teams live events. Past events can be viewed under the Preparing Future Faculty & Professionals (PFFP) Workshop Series Video Archives card below. For more information please email Renee Scampini (scampin2@uwm.edu).
