What does a VIDM facilitator do?
Before the conference facilitators work with conference presenters, helping them to use the webconferencing technology to enhance their presentation
During the conference facilitators moderate the speaker’s session, keeping time and providing space for audience questions and discussions
Each facilitator works with the guidance of a session moderator, assisting before and during the conference. Training is provided. Facilitators should be proficient in English. The ability to work in additional languages is an asset, especially Spanish. VIDM 2019 saw presentations in English, Spanish, French, and Italian.
