Line of colourful chairs, right side reads "Episode 54: Virtual Talks"

Recently I’ve had the opportunity to virtually participate in a couple of roundtables and to provide virtual lectures. In this episode I reflect on the how virtual lectures work, tech challenges, and distance engagement. I also discuss the real costs and privilege of academic travel.

I would love to hear about your experience giving or listening to a virtual lecture. Leave a comment or send me a message on Twitter.
