HOW TO ASK QUESTIONS

BREAKS:

Conferencing, online and in-person can be exhausting! We need to take breaks. We​​ will take breaks. Breaks are built-in to the schedule!

  • Stand up and stretch, get a snack, come back refreshed!

  • If you leave Zoom on, make sure that your microphone is muted during the break.
