SMRT Virtual Meeting:
A “How-To” Guide to Presenting & Moderating at a Scientific Meeting

Registration is FREE for members!
Non-member registration is not available for this event.

Every year, the ISMRM and SMRT have a scientific meeting which is almost certain to metamorphize into a varied format of “face to face” blended with “virtual” forms of address, presentation, and moderation. The techniques of presenting are strongly aligned with techniques of education and teaching, and these techniques are best developed with both meeting formats in mind, with a foundation in quality educational material and delivery. A skilled educator and presenter is ideal to give members a lecture on goals to be aimed for and hopefully achieved during their time on the real or virtual stage. Similarly, moderating in this mixed format environment is a skill to be used to guide the meeting, and extract the most information from the presentation and presenters. Moderating in its own way, can go someway towards making or breaking a meeting.

A large number of ISMRM and SMRT members are presenting at the upcoming meeting, and another significant member cohort will be moderating the sessions during this meeting. This virtual meeting will come 3-4 weeks before the ISMRM/SMRT annual meeting and the timing of this virtual meeting would be perfect to address this much needed skillset.
