Volunteers are a tremendous resources for running a conference.
We could not do what we do without the support and assistance of a crew of volunteers.
We appreciate your time in helping us make Innovation in Teaching and Learning Conferences a success!
If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form linked below:
We'll be setting up around 7:00 a.m. in the morning. We'll need a few volunteers to help with the following tasks:
The Registration table will primarily be staffed with members of CAFE to take care of registration needs. However, it would be nice for a volunteer to help out and give one of them a break throughout the day. Most of the registration activity will be prior to the keynote speaker, though a few late arrivals may trickle in after that.
Room Moderators are the most important volunteers for ITLC and have the most complicated job.
A convener or host for a breakout session has an important role to play in managing the session. As detailed below, moderator duties will be a bit different based on whether or not the session is a virtual/online session or face-to-face.
Our conference is a BLENDED conference. This means that some sessions will be offered in face-to-face mode only, some will have a face-to-face presenter, but will be available to online attendees, and some will have a virtual presenter, but will be viewable by face-to-face participants. The Schedule page and the Abstracts page both indicate the mode of the presentation. Pay very close attention to the modes of the presentations in the rooms you are assigned to moderate!
In order to be a Room Moderator, you will need to have proficiency with the following tasks:
Prior to the keynote speaker, we'll need a couple of volunteers to take shifts standing at the entrance to the main parking lot. Shifts are generally around 30 minutes or so. Parking attendants are only needed until about lunchtime or so.
Your tasks will be as follows:
We'll have need for a few general volunteer assistants to help out.
If you are not assigned to a particular role (e.g., parking attendant), then your tasks will include, but are not limited to:
We'll need a few volunteers to help us tear down the conference at the end of the day.
