About the drop in seminars
About the Drop-in Seminars

  • Over the past several years, the Technology Training Services (TTS) group has put a great deal of effort into improving the quality of and attendance at the Tech Express and Tech Briefing drop-in seminars (formerly known as TTBBs and TGIFs).

  • Our clients have come to expect high quality instruction, information, and materials at these sessions -- and they are getting that!

  • The keys to continuing to deliver quality sessions are marketing and preparation.

Marketing the presentations
Marketing the Presentations

  • TTS routinely emails announcements to techexpress@lists and techbriefings@lists.

  • In addition, presenters often send email to their special interest groups (e.g., netadmin@lists, partners@lists, web-creators@lists) regarding upcoming presentations. They know their potential audience best, and get a good response. TTS has a template that can help you craft a such an email.

  • If there are other ways in which TTS can help presenters market their sessions, just give us a ring (723-4301).

Preparing the presentations
Preparing the Presentations


  • Please plan presentations ahead of time and know what materials and equipment are needed. Let TTS know ONE WEEK in advance for special requests.

  • Contact TTS for a pre-presentation orientation (walk-through) of the technology in the room you will be using, if necessary. To do a “dry-run” in Turing Auditorium before your presentation, contact TTS at least one week ahead.

  • Create good visual aids. These can be PowerPoint slides or websites.

  • Handouts are a must.They may be copies of a PowerPoint presentation, a URL to go to for more information, and/or contact information for the speaker or group.


  • Begin marketing the presentation at least TWO weeks before the session. Contact TTS if you need assistance in crafting or sending notices to potential attendees.

  • Provide enough time for TTS to duplicate handouts and visual aids. Please turn in visual aids no later than ONE WEEK before the presentation. This will give TTS time to review the handout(s) and make the copies.

  • In addition, TTS will publish your handouts to the web: or
