About this Session: In this workshop, we will use the lens of Zoom to explore engaging participants regardless of where they are geographically situated. Engagement requires individual voice and simultaneous interaction. These two things can become challenges when working in a distributed environment. Many people are familiar with Zoom and the meeting experience. However, people may be unfamiliar with the tools that are available both inside and outside the live meeting experience. Come be a part of this conversation and develop your knowledge and skills.
