This confirmation email has a unique web address that is linked to your name/email address. Participants will use the link to enter conference sessions.

Kate Shively, Ball State University, SPE Webmaster & Web Conference Moderator, will send out a reminder about how to gain access a few days before the conference. Look out for that information.

Presenters, you’ll share your PPT slides or handouts for your session via Zoom, with Kate’s assistance.

The chat box will be monitored by Kate. She’ll bring forward any comments once presenters or facilitators are finished speaking and before the next scheduled session begins.

If you’re a presenter and/or facilitator, please arrive to your session as indicated in the program via the link sent to your email after registering for the online conference. All presentations will be recorded and transcribed. LIVE transcription will also be provided.

~ PREPARATION FOR THE CONFERENCE ~

Attention presenters: Please upload your PPT (PDF saved) file, Google slides, or handout for your presentation to this folder by Monday, April 5, 2021. Name your file by your last name and session # (e.g., Rieborn Session 1).

You’ll share your screen and advance your slides/handout at your own pace. But, if you’d like SPE to handle this, just ask Kate Shively—who will already have access to your materials. At your request, she’ll share your slides/pages and advance them as you speak.

Presenters and attendees, pre-register for the conference via this LINK. An email will be sent with access to the conference after you register. The registration information needed: (a) presenter’s first and last name and (b) email address. 

~ PRIOR TO PRESENTING ~

  1. Recommend not having multiple screens open during your presentation so that it is easy for you to determine which screen to share;
  2. We recommend preparing your desktop (i.e. have your document open) before it is your turn;
  3. Be sure to wait for notification from the moderator to share your screen.
