With the COVID-19 global pandemic resulting in many of us working from home – and moving our meetings and events online – there’s been a lot to adjust to in recent months. Since convening teams and collaborations in the virtual realm will be a recurring feature for many in the coming months, our theme for July is: Virtual events: resources to help you and your community thrive online.
In this month’s newsletter:
NEW: A guidebook of virtual event formats
July’s Community Call: Planning and evaluating accessible events
Blog posts – taking your conference virtual
PLUS: We’re hiring!
NEW! Virtual events guidebook
CSCCE staff and community members have created the first installment of a new guidebook for hosting engaging virtual events. In our “cookbook” of virtual meeting formats, you can learn from experienced conveners about 12 different event formats – from co-working in small groups, to hosting demos, study groups, office hours, and more.
Our July community call (tomorrow, Wednesday 22 July, at 2pm US EDT) will feature three presentations from members of CSCCE’s community of practice covering planning, accessibility, and evaluation of virtual events, and open discussion. All welcome!
