Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I need to be camera ready?
Nope. We will use the Zoom webinar platform, so you can join us from your kitchen table, couch, or the porch. Just make sure you’re ready to type, as we will make sure there is plenty of time for your questions through the chat feature.
What do I need to participate?
This program takes place virtually over Zoom. You can either join through an internet-connected device or calling-in via phone. We will send you a link and phone number through the email you used to register around two hours before the program begins. Don’t see the email? Make sure to check your spam or junk folder.
I’m really excited to learn more about this topic, but want to make sure I’m prepared. Do you have anything I can read in advance?
We sure do. You can read some of Jill’s work through this series of blogs on the Hoosier State Chronicles blog or find out more about how this scholarship is part of History Unfolded project with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
