FDD FAQs for Presenters

Thank you for joining us for Spring 2020 Faculty Development Day to share your work!

Please read the following questions and responses: if you have additional concerns, please let us know!

Do I need to register?

Yes! Please RSVP. We use RSVP numbers for estimating food orders as well as seating throughout the day. The Google form for RSVPs collects the responses in an easy format for us to make calculations and adjustments. When you RSVP, you save us time and effort so that we don’t need to enter additional information into the form and check for consistency. You will appreciate the RSVP’s when you are preparing for your session and have these estimated attendance numbers to share with you.

When am I presenting?

You have been emailed a time slot. Printed and online programs will list all presentations in the FDD schedule.

Where am I presenting?

You will receive an email with the location of your presentation by mid-January. Locations will also be posted on the FDD website.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring your presentation on a flash drive, as well as any handouts you plan to distribute. All presenters MUST load their presentations in their assigned rooms between 8:30am-9:30am on January 23, if you have a morning session, and between 12:30pm-2:15pm, if you have an afternoon session.

What do I NOT need to bring?

Each room is equipped with a Windows computer with internet access, projector, and microphone, as well as whiteboards. SMART classrooms contain long, movable tables and chairs to seat approximately 40 people. Lecture rooms are arranged amphitheater style and accommodate 40-50 people. Computer classrooms have separate desktop computers for each participant, fixed tables, movable chairs, and seating for approximately 30 people.

We will provide these additional supplies in each room: washable color markers, 3×3 post-its, easel-sized  pads, scrap paper for notes, and pens. We will collect the supplies at the end of the day.

When do I show up for my presentation?

Please be at your assigned room at least 5 minutes before your session begins. As you will have already uploaded your presentation, (either between 8:30am-9:30am or between 12:30pm-2:15pm), this will give you a chance to check plans with the other presenter(s) in your session as well as help to assure that presentations begin on time.

What should I do if I have to cancel or have an emergency?

Please email tlc@jjay.cuny.edu or, if you are at FDD, find an FDD staff member to assist you. FDD staff members will be wearing badges for easier identification.

What if I need other A/V equipment?

If you have special audio-visual needs, let us know by January 15, 2019. Given the full scheduling of the college tech support, we will not be able to accommodate last minute audio-visual requests.

I have additional concerns. Who can help me?

For other needs or questions, please email the TLC at tlc@jjay.cuny.edu.

We look forward to seeing and learning from you on January 23!!!
