Whether you’re a teacher, professor, speaker, or attendee, the movement to the online space has been challenging for many of us. No small part of that is the loss of most non-verbal communication cues. During this virtual event, Ingrid Stobbe, Assistant Professor of Digital Filmmaking at Lesley University, will guide attendees through specific communication techniques and skill sets that ensure you are not only presenting yourself in an effective way virtually, but that you know how to get the most out of future online lectures, classes, or presentations.
Non-verbal communication makes up 70% of how we understand one another. It’s important to not only acknowledge how to best compensate for that loss in our online communication, but to also know the toll that energy can take and how to manage boundaries around your virtual time to allow for rest and prep. You will leave this session with strategies for maximizing your time, your virtual communication skills, and the effort involved in maintaining efficacy in this new landscape.
Presentation files will be available for participants. There will be time for greetings at the beginning and a Q&A session at the end.
