Pod Facilitators/Leaders are very much like session chairs at a scientific or professional conference, with a couple of additional responsibilities.
- Work with your pod members to decide who will present in which order. You can just ask for volunteers, or set a schedule in advance, or some variant.
- Log in to Zoom in a browser, and go to your Settings>In Meeting(Basic). Set Screensharing to All Participants, and turn on Nonverbal Feedback.
- Issue a Zoom meeting invitation in your pod’s Slack channel. Be sure to activate recording; cloud recording is recommended. Text Prof. Hertzberg at 303 817 0967 if there is a problem.
- Take attendance and keep track of presenters, and send who presented and who was present to Prof. H and Behruz after class.
- Help the speakers get their screen sharing set up. Ask for help from others if you need it. Remind each speaker that they may want to record their presentation; your recording is a backup.
- Time each speaker. Give them a signal close to the end of their time (9 minutes for presentation, 7 minutes for discussion) to let them know time is running out.
- Moderate questions: Ask participants to use the ‘raise your hand’ button in Zoom. Remind pod of critique structure:
- Statements of meaning
- Questions from artist
- Neutral questions from audience
- Permissioned opinions.
Help the audience frame neutral questions, suggest rephrasing comments as needed.
- Remind everybody to type their comments as well as speaking out loud. Remind all that each speaker should get at least one response in each of the four categories
- Offer a comment and ask a question if nobody else volunteers. Be a model of good critique technique.
- Distribute the link to the recording session to all participants.
- Commit to hosting all the presentation sessions, or get somebody to substitute for you.
