Title: Presenting online: how to dodge boredom?
By: The Orator (De Redenaar; Dietmar Hertsen & Edward De Vooght)
Description: If we frequently lost our interest in academic presentations before going online, then today we battle online boredom every day. Online presentations just don’t seem to achieve the same level of engagement as a live performance. But maybe that is just because we present as if nothing has changed, while a new medium calls for new techniques. In this interactive workshop De Redenaar (The Orator) will discuss the key differences between live and online performances which should be considered for every entertaining and impactful online presentation.
