Using lessons learned from 4+ years of hybrid programming at a research institution, Alyssa Denneler will discuss do’s and don'ts for conducting events in the campus and local community. Of particular note are considerations for planning your event, post-event documentation and wrap-up, and ensuring you have the tools you need to confidently host a valuable event for all involved.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Learners will be able to identify strategies for success in order to execute valuable hybrid events in their community.
  2. Learners will be able to avoid common pitfalls of online events in order to ensure a smooth transition to hybrid programming.
