Moderator Resources

​​​Moderators play an essential role in a session - they welcome the audience, keep the discussion moving, facilitate audience engagement with the speaker, and ensure the session runs on time. 

To be a successful moderator, be sure to: ​

  • ​Familiarize yourself with the presenters and the presentations that will be given during your session. 
  • Prepare questions for the presenters to help guide the discussion. 
  • Given the high number of international participants, please speak slowly and remind your presenters to do so as well.  ​
  • Introduce each speaker before they begin. 
  • Be consistent with keeping your speakers to their allotted time. 
  • Maintain a goal to try to keep all speakers engaged in the discussion. ​
  • Close out the session by thanking all of the speakers and the audience for their participation.​
