How to Organize and Present a Moderated Panel

Walter Betts, Emily Billings, and Carolyn Booker

How many times have you attended a panel at a conference, only to find a series of unrelated micro-presentations with little useful content? Leaders of the 2017 Texas Library Association Conference will discuss how to organize and implement a moderated panel as a conference program event. Moderated panels drop the pointless 5-minute slideshows for an interview-style program that centers on the critical issues for the audience. This webinar is especially intended for program planners who are orchestrating panel programs at the 2017 TLA Conference, but the ideas can be used by any event planner.
