A recent survey of members of the Virginia Library Association revealed that a number of library professionals would be interested in presenting but requested help with the necessary skills. In response, VLA launched the Presentation Academy, a hybrid of in-person and online workshops intended to increase VLA members’ presentation confidence and improve presentations in our region. This Webinar, led by Presentation Academy faculty members, will discuss the logistics of launching such an Academy, the content we provided, feedback from our participants, and plans for future Academies.
Presented by Candice Small, Radford University, McConnell Library; Jennifer Whicker, Radford University, McConnell Library; Nathan Flinchum, Roanoke Public Libraries; and Lisa R. Varga, Executive Director, Virginia Library Association.
