The past year forced everyone in higher education to take their teaching, meetings, and/or community-related events online, so we are all experienced at conducting real-time virtual sessions now, right? ...Right? OK, well, there's always room for improvement. To that end, this presentation, hosted by the POD Network's Digital Resources & Innovation Committee, will discuss how to make different kinds of virtual sessions more engaging. Participants will join our community of educational developers to discuss strategies, tools, materials, and activities that hosts and presenters can use to prompt participation and engagement in different types of virtual experiences.
