Scholar Social is hosting a free online conference, #SummerSchool !
And we're looking for presenters!
If you're a writer, researcher, formal academic, or anyone with expertise that you'd like to share, presentation spots are 10-15 min long (no formal credentials required, open to people on any Fedi instance, not just scholar.social)
Sign up by 2020 July 12 here:
@bgcarlisle I'm so tempted, but, alas, the time, the time...
@bgcarlisle oh nice. i wanna make sure i don't miss it, now (i mean, well, to watch)
@bgcarlisle How technical do you expect these should be, on a scale from "chat with my thesis adviser" to "TED talk"? How much math do you expect the audience will want?
@b It's going to be pretty variable
Presenters will be speaking to an audience that's interested and engaged, but almost certainly not informed about their area of expertise, so try to gauge the level of technical-ness along those lines
The point of this conference is to give us all a chance to share and keep up our teaching skills, and to get feedback from others who aren't involved in your work
Does that clarify at all?
@bgcarlisle Sure, sounds good.
@bgcarlisle I'd love to present, but in the form I don't understand what 'host meeting' means.
@kimreece Oh that just means that you're able to create the Zoom room or equivalent for the purposes of the presentation
@bgcarlisle Oh ok! :) Thank you.
