Click to complete the Speaker Application

Create Your Content – We recommend that your Power Point be completed at least one week prior to the webinar. NRRTS uses Zoom Webinars.

    • Prepare a PowerPoint presentation that covers the topic at the level discussed with NRRTS. The session should cover approximately 50 minutes worth of material to allow time for questions and comments (typically 50-55 slides for a one hour time frame)
    • See  Sample NRRTS Webinar Template
    • Learning outcomes must be listed on the 3rd slide
    • Disclosure statement must be listed on the 4th slide
    • Contact information must be listed on the last slide
    • NRRTS recommends that you use transitions from one learning outcome to the next as an opportunity to pause and allow the audience to ask questions. Wrap up at the end and allow time for discussion.
    • Photos –be sure to have a signed release for any photos and videos used. You do not need to provide the release to NRRTS unless requested to do so.
    • Videos (optional, but encouraged) – videos may be embedded in the Power Point
    • Demonstrations: you can use your video and the Power Point at the same time with a “side by side” view. You can enable video in the Zoom toolbar to show both your presentation and yourself.
    • References: include references at the bottom of slides when appropriate to provide credit to a source of information. If not cited on the slide, add the references at the end of the presentation.
    • Other Resources: List helpful reference materials, websites, or other resources where the participant may obtain further information.  List all sources of information.
    • Polls: (optional) polls can be displayed at any time during the webinar and allow the participants to answer a question. You can use the chat box for comments to questions you ask, or the “emoticons” showing “disagree” or “agree”

Submit all material at least one week before the scheduled webinar date

    • Quiz – You will send a 5-question quiz at least one week before the webinar. A mix of multiple-choice, true/false, or matching.
    • Power Point: Send the PowerPoint to Annette Hodges at NRRTS at least two days before the presentation date. You can send a PDF of the presentation with one slide per page if you prefer.
    • Handouts: To create a handout, save the PowerPoint as a PDF (handout mode, 2 slides per page). Check to be sure your handout is easy to read. Feel free to include any other useful handouts.

Technology Check

    • The technology check is essential and required prior to the webinar day. Ideally, this should occur one week before the webinar, but no later than 72 hours before the presentation. Please arrange to dedicate approximately 15-20 minutes to check audio and technology.

After the Presentation

    • Evaluation: Attendees will be provided with a link to take the quiz and evaluate the overall presentation. These items are included in the course evaluation: organization, preparedness, knowledge of subject matter, and outcomes were achieved. You will receive these results approximately two weeks after the webinar.
    • On Demand Recorded Webinar
      All NRRTS webinars are recorded and provided to those who could not attend the live webinar. Webinars that meet our standards are added to the NRRTS On-Demand Library. This library is available for NRRTS Registrants, FONs, and others who want to earn CEUs.
