Zooming In: Practicing Zoom Features for Interactive Sessions

Zooming In: Practicing Zoom Features for Interactive Sessions

You’ve participated in Zoom, but have you opened a breakout room? Launched a poll? This workshop gives participants a chance to practice using key features of Zoom as a “host” (i.e., the person running the meeting) to prepare to facilitate interactive sessions and small group discussions on the platform. Facilitators will explain how and why to use breakout rooms, screen sharing, polls, and nonverbal feedback, and simulate hosting a meeting for participants. After completion of this workshop you will receive materials so you can run a similar Zoom practice session with your colleagues.

This workshop is open to Northwestern graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and staff. If you’ve never used Zoom before we recommend first attending one of NUIT’s Introduction to Zoom for Instructors sessions.
