What does a VIDM facilitator do?

  • Before the conference, facilitators work with conference presenters by helping them to use the web conferencing 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 will be provided. Facilitators should be proficient in English. The ability to work in additional languages is an asset, especially in Spanish. The last two year’s conferences have seen presentations in English, Spanish, French, and Italian.

If you have experience using web conferencing technology and would like to add something interesting to your resume, apply to become a VIDM Facilitator today!
