First webinar!

I successfully presented my first webinar via Zoom Meeting to the Frederick Community College President’s Diversity Task Force.

Zoom Meeting is software similar to GoToMeeting or UberMeeting. I’m lucky to have IT at the university provide a pro-level subscription serve to the meeting software and detailed documentation, but my overall experience with configuration was painless.

I presented on communicating diversity in broad terms: opportunities, challenges, and then methods to consider for internal and external communications.

It was a challenging experience presenting via webinar, I am much more comfortable presenting via in-person settings like conferences or workshops. Unfortunately I couldn’t see the participants at Frederick Community College and there were some audio issues during the Q&A. However, I think my overall delivery of the content went well and I had a great experience prepping for this new opportunity.

Texting queen…but not while driving

My husband always calls me the “texting queen.” I do like to text, but I know there are other people out there that are way worse than me. Anyways, he never lets me text while driving. Well, I’m generally not allowed to do anything while driving besides drive. Which is really smart, don’t get me wrong. Anyways, check out this Distracted Driving Game that I found on NYTs website. It’s an interactive game where you have to get through toll-booth-looking-gates while simultaneously getting texts and responding to texts. It’s actually really cool and pretty fun! At the end of it, it shows you how much your average response time goes up while texting and how that compares to the national average of response times while texting. It’s really cool, check it out.

And DON’T TEXT WHILE YOU DRIVE, it’s a bad habit.
