Virtual conferencing has become an increasingly important part of the academic experience, offering new ways to share research and network with colleagues. Like any scholarly platform, online conferences offer distinct benefits and challenges, and understanding how they differ from in-person events can make for more effective online experiences. In this free workshop, Sara Woodbury will provide an overview of virtual conferencing as an academic platform. She'll review the different kinds of conferences attendees may encounter, offer strategies for putting together effective online presentations, and suggest ways to participate in virtual networking.

Sara Woodbury is an art historian and Ph.D. candidate in American Studies at William & Mary. Her research explores traveling exhibitions and other forms of museum outreach. Prior to coming to William & Mary, she was an art museum curator, working at such institutions as the Roswell Museum and Art Center, Shelburne Museum, and the Dallas Museum of Art. She is currently working with the Barry Art Museum on an exhibition about robots and automata, scheduled to open in 2022.
