People can see themselves, which seems to shorten presentations (which is good).
Amanda Troy, PhD, MS

distracted by the chat
(OLC) Kaitlin Garrett

Reminder to send your chat message to "All panelists and attendees" so that everyone can see your message :-)
Dawn Duerre

too many word son Powerpoint slides
Amanda Major (she/her/hers)
25:25
It's always great to have a partner during presentations.
Christina Weir
25:36
I notice that a good presentation has multiple people involved in the presentation: The Presenter, Chat Watcher, Q&A Watcher. I wish I had some technical support when Im presenting class.
ARSL Leadership Institute
25:41
partner to watch chat is really helpful
Beth Cohen
25:55
I love that we’re getting comments about checking in chat - it’s good to check in chat but it’s good to time it in your presentation so you aren’t checking the entire time.
Beth Cohen
26:04
Unless you are running a solely discussion based session.
Beth Cohen
26:22
Yes, having someone help monitor is so helpful!
Beth Cohen
27:12
Amanda, I agree that it’s always wonderful to share with a fellow presenter - one of the reasons I’m enjoying today!
Candace
27:36
you sound like you are smiling and interested in what you are discussing
Beth Cohen
27:57
Candace, great comment.
Beth Cohen

NaLisa, that’s fantastic! And it gives the a sense of ownership in the class.

How has everyone practiced their presentation skills
Dawn Duerre

I have a Zoom question - do you know how to change the font size in my individual chat box?
Christina Weir
30:09
I have practiced by recording myself in ZOOM or ScreenCastOMatic
Beth Cohen
30:10
Clea, I agree! I felt like everyone was speaking to their students.
Beth Cohen
30:25
Dawn, it’s under accessibility settings
Beth Cohen
30:39
Christina, great idea!
Donna Hanks
30:42
Love that...gotta be a little "extra"!
Christina Weir

I like that: Camera Eats your energy
ARSL Leadership Institute

Beth Cohen

And they want to see your pets.
(OLC) Kaitlin Garrett
31:41
YES to the pets
Christina Weir
31:53
@BETH: Yes to the pets!!! My students always asks for 2 min at the end to have a pet parade
Clea Mahoney
32:18
love that, Christina
Clea Mahoney
32:39
I have!
Sherrell Wheeler
32:50
Yes, it was horrible!
Clea Mahoney
33:01
A lovely PhD student from Argentina joined an NYU training session lol. So I had a friendly zoom bomber.
Nicole Weber
34:38
Have strategies that work for you while facilitating synchronous sessions? Share them in the collaborative doc! https://bit.ly/35gzI55
Clea Mahoney
34:55
Great idea, thanks Nicole!
Aaron Bahmer
37:15
Ugh. Lighting!
Clea Mahoney
37:22
Quotable! “Audio is 2/3 of video.”
Curtis OMalley
38:44
The class talk about 5 words per slide would it be better to have a slide like this one as 5 slides or as a list on one side?
Christina Weir
39:18
I think you can have a more wordy slide if the slide is going to be shared a long time
ARSL Leadership Institute
39:18
@curtis, good point
Beth Cohen
39:34
Yes I’m guilty of this! Ha ha.
Beth Cohen
39:43
Glad everyone is catching this!
Beth Cohen
39:56
One thing to think about is having two sets of slides - one for presentation and one for takeaways.
Christina Weir
40:18
Our presenters make this look soooo easy!
Beth Cohen
41:21
That might be me causing us to be 3 minutes behind!
ARSL Leadership Institute
41:36
@I love the idea of two slide decks for the two purposes - in session and after session
Bethany Bovard
41:49
? “silence is golden” ? Sometimes :)
Beth Cohen
42:10
Just to note about presentation design - one of the best presentations I’ve been to had only 7 slides. 7 images from the film Metropolis. No text. That’s the conference presentation I remember most.
Dawn Duerre
42:12
I like the two slides option too. I;m already thinking of how I can modify my existing slides
Clea Mahoney
42:21

(OLC) Kaitlin Garrett
42:23
You did ;-)
cushionc
42:26
The zoom sessions were very helpful but yes, glad they were not all day long.
Amanda Troy, PhD, MS
42:55
I use two decks - one is given to the student ahead of time, and the one I use to teach from. They are different, but not dramatically so. Often I give the students more text in their version
Beth Cohen
43:05
Amanda, great practice!
ARSL Leadership Institute
43:14
Images can be distracting if they use visual metaphor or other esoteric images that make we wonder what it has to do with the point rather than list.

We can also consider not having slides at all at times. Our meetings can focus on discussion!
ARSL Leadership Institute
44:35
Zoom white board can be pretty fun
sdeprow@astate.edu
45:19
It was a little awkward. Difficult to get others to chat
Donna Hanks
45:22
Yes, wasn't totally sure what I was doing, but it went ok.
Sherrell Wheeler
45:24
They work when the instructions are strong.
ARSL Leadership Institute
45:26
I like the backwards design idea for break outs and the need to describe what will happen ahead of time.
Ericka Sipiorski
45:27
Breakouts are great when the instructors tells everyone exactly what to expect.
nomelchenko
45:37
I understand why it was done for a larger group of people. It was appropriate.
Aaron Bahmer
45:38
For a virtual conference, we built a session for "happy hour" and featured various games in breakout rooms. I ran a bingo game :)
Clea Mahoney
45:41
I hear you on the images. Use what you think is best :). I like images and metaphor, but stay true to your own style.
Amanda Troy, PhD, MS
45:47
Mixed - clear instructions definitely help encourage discussion. More worthwhile when there was a preselected facilitator who knew ahead of time what to do
Candace
45:50
I was in a break out room and it went very well. You could tell the speaker had practiced.
Chris Adamson
46:06
I love how the host can move through rooms, simulating when you let group work start for a few minutes and then walk around the room to check in
David Mannaioni
46:13
It all depends on who is leading and if they're comfortable managing breakout room. Some instructors are terrible at it and it just becomes a distraction. The ones that are good at it are able to leverage the true value of a small group discussion to guide the class.
Clea Mahoney
46:17
Kelli, I’ll take a look as we wrap up. Thanks for letting me know!
(OLC) Kaitlin Garrett
47:26
@Kelli - it seems to be working for me. This is the direct link: https://sites.google.com/nyu.edu/nyu-steinhardt-toolkit/instructional-activities/zoom-activities?authuser=0
ARSL Leadership Institute
47:53
What happens after the break out session is also important. Is there some debrief to share experiences or deliverables so that learning goes deeper?
Clea Mahoney
48:15
re. the 2 slides, that’s a great tip Amanda - similar to Slideology (book by Nancy Duarte). Currently, I don’t have that time to make 2 decks so I just do my best. But aiming to be at Amanda-level one day!
Amanda Troy, PhD, MS
49:15
LOL - @Clea - I make my teaching deck first, then "save as" with a new name and make my adjustments for the students
Clea Mahoney
49:44
good idea!
Clea Mahoney
50:11
Sample, with some real-live feedback: http://bit.ly/OLCmaintakeaway
Aaron Bahmer
50:50
My favorite takeaway from all of these OLC workshops is the shared notes document concept.
Bethany Bovard
50:57
I think a recent change is to allow recording in each breakout roo
Clea Mahoney
51:02
me too, Aaron
ARSL Leadership Institute
51:14
@Aaron - me too
Beth Cohen
53:16
Hi Charles, yes! That depends on how you set up breakouts in Zoom. If you choose the group set as host, they will be invited to a specific breakout room you choose.
Christina Weir
54:00
Im afraid to ask my learners for Start Stop Continue feedback, Lol
Beth Cohen
54:13
Christina, I am too sometimes!
Amanda Troy, PhD, MS
54:23
Use different types of learner interactions
sdeprow@astate.edu
54:23
Be more interactive somehow someway
Ericka Sipiorski
54:35
Go over the top to look normal :)
Scott Herriott
54:42
The limit of 5 words on a slide seems extreme to me, but I
Dawn Duerre
54:50
Add more interactive activities for my learners
Carol Fendrick
54:51
record a practice session and review it and reflect on it.
Linda Grossman
54:52
You showed how to use the tools instead of telling us
Ken Rathbun
55:06
This session gave me some helpful tips on being engaging. My wife's name is Clea too (she's from Brazil).
Cindy Shnaider
55:08
Yes, your energy and smiling!
David Mannaioni
55:23
Don't be afraid to try something new. Practice, try it, evaluate. It's an evolutionary process.
Clea Mahoney
55:27
Awww I love you all
Sherrell Wheeler
55:28
Be over animated.
Desiree Davis
55:43
Keep learning and be encouraged!
Scott Herriott
55:45
I’ll think about the 5-word limit to slides and the 10-min limit on topics or activities. They seem low but it’s worth thinking about.
Leslie Evans
56:10
Practice, and even if you have a glitch, roll with it.
cushionc
56:17
My first workshop I have a lot to work on but very good information to grow on. Thanks.
Monica Stambach
56:30
good breakout room ideas!
ARSL Leadership Institute
57:10
I appreciate the focus on preparation and the reflection for improvement at the end. That focus on continuous preparation and improvement are so helpful to plan for.
Clea Mahoney
57:17
I like Logitech headsets
Bethany Bovard
57:27
I write a script on the slides - but only because I share the slides and some folks just want to read… But I don’t read from that script during the session
ARSL Leadership Institute
57:48
@Bethany, good strategies
Clea Mahoney
58:17
I love reading all your takeaways!
Dawn Duerre
58:37
I write a script the first time I've taught a new class.
ARSL Leadership Institute
58:51
If it's supposed to be a conversation, how do you write and read a script and include dialog?
Christina Weir
59:40
I purchased an inexpensive document camera from Amazon, it works great to share handwritten material
Beth Cohen
59:45
I build in pauses and questions to my script
Dawn Duerre
01:00:00
I usually never read my script exactly, but it is there to help me make sure I mention all of the points I feel I need to mention.
Aaron Bahmer
01:00:40
We bought a special clamp/boom to hold a phone as a doc camera.
Dawn Duerre
01:01:27
I have a separate small web cam that I attach to a tripod pointed down to see my handwritten things. But I also have an iPad with a pencil and use Notability.
Beth Cohen
01:01:37
Yes, notability works great!
Beth Cohen
01:01:54
And if you need more ideas there’s a Facebook group for Online Studio Art faculty who come up with amazing solutions.
Clea Mahoney
01:03:24

ARSL Leadership Institute
01:08:59
Thank you for that great tip: Consider those who are watching the recording and provide ways for them to actively learn.
Angela Gibson
01:09:56
Clea and Beth - may we facilitators get a copy of the recording to add to our cohort workshop sites please?
Christina Weir
01:10:29
Any recommendations on video editing software to "chunk" a long video? I use ZOOM to record my sessions and would like to break up onto segments
(OLC) Kaitlin Garrett
