Tips for a Successful Webinar

To best meet the learning expectations for a scheduled webinar, here are some noteworthy tips.

Pre-Webinar: Collaborate

Work with the TeachingBooks Professional Development Team to identify:

  • Desired outcomes
  • Learning objectives
  • Audience: grade level, content area, level of experience
  • Duration: 15 minutes to 2+ hours

Schedule a technology test before the session — speakers, microphones, projection, etc.
