Speak­ing at BeOnline

 

Thank you so much for being part of BeOnline 2022.

We’re delight­ed to have you and look­ing for­ward to hear­ing about your research!

We’ve put this page togeth­er to tell you what you can expect on the day, and give some guid­ance for your presentation.

Tim­ings on the day

 

BeOnline 2022 is a one-day con­fer­ence made up of approx 1 hour ses­sions. Each ses­sion will include 3 speak­ers — the oth­er speak­ers in your ses­sion are like­ly to be oth­er researchers who work in a sim­i­lar field to you.

Each pre­sen­ta­tion will be 15 min­utes, fol­lowed by 5 min­utes of audi­ence questions.

Please arrive 10–15 min­utes before your sched­uled ses­sion so that we can check in with you and answer any last minute ques­tions. The con­fer­ence will be held as a Zoom webi­nar, and we’ll send you a Zoom pan­el­list link ahead of the con­fer­ence — you’ll just need to click the Zoom link to join. The webi­nar will be record­ed and we’ll send the record­ings out to the con­fer­ence mail­ing list for any­one who could­n’t make it on the day.

If you can stay for the full hour of your ses­sion to keep answer­ing ques­tions in the chat (and pos­si­bly if we have time, for a short pan­el Q&A with the oth­er pre­sen­ters), that would be fan­tas­tic, but we under­stand if you need to leave early.

Final tim­ings tbc (we’ll reach out to you by email in the next few weeks), but the con­fer­ence is like­ly to run from around 10am — 6pm BST. We’ll make sure to sched­ule US speak­ers for the after­noon session.

 

Pre­sen­ta­tion Guidance

 

First and fore­most, we want to hear about your research! Do use and adapt what­ev­er mate­ri­als you would nor­mal­ly use to talk about your research.

BeOnline is a con­fer­ence about online research with a focus on online research meth­ods, so we want to know how you put your study togeth­er as well as hear­ing about the final study and results.

There are 4 extra slides we’d like you to include.
  • Com­pare and con­trast online with the lab:  What was your research like before you took it online?  Why did you go online?  What did you gain by going online?
  • Chal­lenges of online research:  Any hur­dles you had to over­come.  Ethics?  Pilot­ing?  Man­ag­ing par­tic­i­pants?  Your own fears and objec­tions!  How did you over­come them (or are they still a work in progress)?
  • Top Tips:  Tops tips for oth­er researchers like you tak­ing research online for the first time. 
  • Fea­ture Show­case:  If appro­pri­ate, show­case a stand-out fea­ture of your exper­i­ment that was essen­tial and why. “I cre­at­ed [this pro­ce­dure].  This allows me to inves­ti­gate [my research ques­tion] which is impor­tant for [the­o­ret­i­cal rea­son].”  Include a gif or screen­shot of what the par­tic­i­pant sees (if appro­pri­ate for your research).

Our aim with BeOnline is to pro­vide inter­est­ing and help­ful exam­ples and guid­ance for researchers want­i­ng to move online, or to improve their online studies. 

Obvi­ous­ly, we’d like you to talk about how online research has worked well for you, but don’t be afraid of talk­ing about chal­lenges and dis­ad­van­tages as well.

If you have any ques­tions, just drop me an email at [email protected]
