Hands-on Webinar - Strengthening GCC Conference Proposals

Event Description

Strengthening GCC Conference Proposals with headshot for Katie Homar PhDEvent Description:
Get concrete, constructive and actionable advice for strengthening your GCC conference proposal! 

In this hands-on, interactive webinar, participants will give and receive feedback on their proposal drafts for member-generated sessions. This immersive webinar workshop will consist of small group feedback sessions in breakout rooms (2-4 participants), in addition to a short opening instructional session and debrief. 

This is the second of the mini-series of events to support GCC members who are considering presenting member-generated sessions at the GCC conference, and members who plan to attend the first Conferencing Tips panel on January 26 might be particularly interested in this opportunity to get feedback on proposals.

To get the most out of this session and strengthen your proposal, you should plan to attend the first Conferencing Tips panel, or watch the recording of the panel which will be shared via email. You should also have access to a working rough draft of your GCC proposal. Since this webinar is “hands-on,” you should plan to be in a setting where you can use audio and screen share via Zoom on the day/time of the webinar.
