Guidance for presenters on webinars

Due to a tightly packed schedule, we will adhere to strict time limits for webinars:

  • Webinars are allocated 45 minutes in total
  • Presenters should plan for a 30-minute presentation including any interactive elements and Q&A

Discussions can be continued in the Virtual Conference Café.

Each session will be moderated by an ALT Trustee or a member of the ALT Staff Team, who will introduce the session and ensure that timings are adhered to.

You will be able to access Blackboard Ultra up to 30 minutes prior to your session start time, in order to prepare and upload any presentation slides. A member of the ALT Team will be in the session from this time to grant you the necessary moderator rights.

Webinars can be accessed directly from the online programme. Simply click ‘Join Webinar’ on each of the sessions within the programme at
