Thematic Discussion Forum Instructions

Presenters in thematic discussion forums

Each thematic discussion forum will get its own “building.” Each building has a stage for the presenters and tables for the attendees to sit at. As a main presenter, you can

  • share your screen with everyone,
  • share a whiteboard,
  • how videos by linking directly to popular video sites like YouTube, Twitch, and Vimeo
  • invite attendees on the stage (to a maximum of 10), and
  • use the chat and Q&A features.
Further, you can ask the tables to discuss topics (similar to breakout rooms) and attendees can choose where they go. Each table will have access to a dedicated chat area and whiteboard.

We encourage you to think about how you can use these features to make a truly interactive presentation.

Please contact us at SoTLInstitute@mtroyal.ca if you have any specific requests for your building. For example, you may want tables to have at most four attendees at each one. Please let us know as soon as possible if you have these requests and we’ll do our best to accommodate them.
