We’re gearing up for our 2-day online conference in December focused on Serving the 21st Century Patron and in addition to hosting 7 sessions with 11 outstanding presenters we’re experimenting with Battledecks. Peter Bromberg provides a nice definition of Battledecks on this Learning RT blogpost:
Battledecks is a fun improv exercise that challenges contestants to deliver a presentation on the fly using an unknown slidedeck containing random (and often hilarious) slides. The contestants are judged on their ability to create a coherent presentation that incorporates the slide content smoothly. Laughs and getting through all of the slides on time are a plus.
We’re excited to be bringing you an online version of Battledecks to wrap up the conference with some interesting twists:
- There will be 5 contestants in the competition, each provided with 5 minutes to complete their impromptu presentation.
- YOU, the audience will judge their performance based on a set of scoring categories.
- All will surely be entertained and inspired by the experience!
We look forward to seeing you at the conference, for as few or as many of the sessions as you’re able to attend and as always, archives will be made available.
