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. Moderator positions are available for experienced VIDM facilitators.
If you have experience using webconferencing technology and would like to add something interesting to your resume, apply to become a VIDM facilitator today.
