To help you track your preparation, here is a check list you can mark off as you go. Don’t worry – it will remain checked, in the same browser, if you leave and come back.

If you have questions or need assistance, please email us at KualiDays@Kuali.org.

We feel privileged to have you and so many other outstanding individuals presenting at Kuali Days! This page has all the information you should need to get prepared for your conference presentation.

Session Room and AV Set Up

Presenters should bring their own laptop and an adapter to connect to the projector. Projectors can accommodate both HDMI and VGA inputs.

Session rooms vary in size and configuration (classroom vs. rounds, for example), but each room will have a podium, mic, projector, screen, and speaker(s). Smaller rooms will only have one speaker, larger will have two or more, depending on the size of the room.

There will be laptop audio in every room so presenters can play video with sound.

Wifi will be available everywhere, and a wired ethernet cable will be at the podium in each room so the presenter doesn’t have to rely on the wifi.

Speaker Profile

The Kuali Days mobile app will be an important tool for attendees to plan and manage their personal schedules, stay on top of notifications during the event, and have a convenient resource for conference details. It will be accessible by mobile devices, as well as laptops.

Each session has a speaker section, so attendees see who the session presenters are as they build their schedules. It is important for you to create your speaker profile to help us all get to know one another and connect at the conference. It is an impressive gathering of amazing people.

You have been sent an invitation email from the Kuali Days app asking you to complete your speaker profile. Just follow the link and instructions.

It will take only a few minutes to add information for any or all of the following, and you can edit or add to it at any time:

  • Photo
  • Brief Bio
  • Social Media Links
  • Contact Information
