For Speakers

  • You’ll need a permit to park on campus; check your email, FB or Twitter account for the magic phrase to tell the parking kiosk attendants for free parking.
  • The class runs from 6.00 to 10.00. Guest speakers  are usually scheduled from 6.10 – 7.00(ish) with questions*. You are welcome to hang around as long as you like — but we may put you to work. :-)
  • The classroom has a PC workstation with internet connectivity and “audio out.” Or you can bring your own laptop; our laptop station has a standard VGA input (warning for Mac folks – please remember your adapter!).
  • We may be recording the session unless you prefer that we not.
  • We will be live-tweeting the session unless you prefer that we not.
  • I suggest some prepared remarks (with or without slides) followed by discussion.Please focus your opening comments succinctly on the following points.
    (1) We are especially interested in how/why your organizations are using digital tools for communication and mobilizing constituencies — and lessons learned.
    (2) We’re also looking for your thoughts on “best practices.”
