Volunteers Needed to Help Serious Play Conf Go Online
Serious Play Conference is looking for a few Online Conference-Savvy Volunteers to help us move our 2020 program online.
With safety restrictions on travel and group gatherings in place and UCF closed until at least August, a live Serious Play Conference in June is not possible. So, we will be moving the 2020 conference online, offering the community worldwide the opportunity to hear our great speakers.
We’ve been looking at both Zoom and Microsoft Teams, both easy to use, accessible services. The software has been in place for about 3 years and was a 2020 PC Magazine Editors Choice. It’s Cloud-Based. Screen Sharing. HD Video/Voice. We could have a very similar program offering, 6-8 rooms at once, so attendees can pick and choose sessions from the different tracks as they have always loved to do.
We need technical leads for each channel/track to help speakers get set up the week before and online ahead of their session time the week of Conference. Also, a volunteer assigned to each channel/track to be sure attendees can get in and move around the program. Higher ed faculty and their students, school or online computer experts, practitioners, all welcome. Anyone who helps will get free registration.
Our plan is to offer the online program on the same week, June 22-26. We are thinking about offering sessions that run from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. EST, with each session running 45 minutes and with 15 minutes to close out. To help attendees navigate, we will schedule a 30 minute break in between each session.
We hope you can join us. As a volunteer, you will have free access to this paid professional conference and can attend other session that interest you.
