On Friday, March 24th, our team partnered with our friends in Belk Library to launch a one-day virtual conference supporting the College and University Section of the North Carolina Library Association. This fully online conference focused broadly on different areas of innovation and attracted participants from around the country (and Mexico). This free, international conference received a great deal of positive feedback from the participants, and is a great example of not only the power of technology to break down barriers to accessing quality professional development, but also the power of cross-campus collaborations.
The sessions, powered by Zoom, enabled screen sharing and “Q&A” audio and chat, allowing participants to engage with the presenters and be a part of the session from any Internet-connected device. Conference sessions held up to fifty participants at a time and provided a great atmosphere for these kinds of short presentations.
