For Presenters

Thank you for presenting at the 2021 UWM Teaching and Learning Symposium, which will be held on January 14, 2021. Although the symposium is virtual this year, we can still share our knowledge and experiences about teaching and learning and make meaningful personal connections. We greatly appreciate your contribution to this year’s program!

Before the Symposium

You may feel more comfortable presenting on the day of the symposium if you do a little bit of preparation prior to your session. Before your session, you should:

During Your Session

A CETL facilitator will be attending your session to assist you with any technical issues that may arise. All sessions are 45 minutes in length, and your CETL facilitator will keep track of your remaining time and can help you facilitate questions and discussion. On the day of the symposium, January 14, you should:

  1. Find your session in the program
  2. Click on “Join Session” to the right of your session description 10-15 minutes before your session begins
    • Please use your first and last name so that your CETL facilitator will recognize your name when you enter the session
    • Your role in the session will be changed to Moderator by your CETL facilitator
  3. Upload any PowerPoints you intend to share
    • You may want to upload at least a title slide, even if you don’t plan to formally present, so that attendees know they are in the right session
  4. Discuss the session logistics with your CETL facilitator
    • Would you like to be introduced by the CETL facilitator?
    • How can the CETL facilitator help you manage the chat?
    • When should the CETL facilitator remind you about the remaining time?
  5. Greet attendees as they enter your session
  6. Share your webcam when you are speaking
  7. Invite attendees to participate (when appropriate) using chat, polls, or audio

Please note that all sessions will be recorded (including the chat) and posted in the UWM Teaching and Learning Symposium Canvas site.

Tips for Success

For All Types of Sessions

For the best technical performance, you may want to:

  • Close all unnecessary tabs in your browser and all unneeded applications on your computer
  • Use a headset or earbuds if you are presenting in a location with background noise
  • Make sure PowerPoint slides are in a readable font (24 size font minimum)

To provide context for attendees in your session, you may want to:

  • Describe your course (discipline, course topic, enrollment, etc.)
  • Describe your pedagogical challenge, including why it matters and how you addressed it
  • Show example materials (assignment sheets, de-identified student work, videos, etc.)
  • Discuss your results, including student feedback and instructor reflection
  • Consider how your approach might apply to courses in other disciplines and formats

For Birds-of-a-Feather

These sessions are informal conversations that are designed to elicit an exchange of ideas and perspectives around a common theme or topic. This is not a formal presentation. If you are leading a birds-of-a-feather session, you may want to:

  • Plan for multiple threads of conversation with key questions to prompt conversation
  • Encourage the exchange of ideas, challenges, and resources among participants
  • Facilitate a large group discussion about your proposed theme or topic using a combination of audio and chat
  • Coordinate small group discussions using breakout rooms in Collaborate Ultra

For Interactive Presentations

In these sessions, presenters share pedagogical strategies, innovations, or initiatives that support or advance teaching and learning. These are not lectures. If you are leading an interactive presentation session, you may want to:

Uploading Presenter Materials

If you would like to provide handouts or slides to attendees before, during, or after your session, you can upload them to a Symposium SharePoint folder for your session using the following steps:

  1. Log into Office 365 if you’re not already
  2. Find your session in the program below
  3. Click on the upload icon ⬆️ next to your session title
  4. Add your files to the SharePoint folder

If Something Goes Wrong

Your CETL facilitator will be in the Collaborate Ultra room to help address technical issues you may encounter. However, if you have trouble logging into the session or lose connectivity, please contact your CETL facilitator via phone or chat (see below). You can also contact CETL directly at 414-229-4319 or through Microsoft Teams chat.
