  • Ensure you are in the centre of the video frame
  • Ensure you are not backlit (i.e., face the light)
  • Double check your audio settings to ensure the volume playback is good
  • Double check your video and image playback quality is good

What content should I include?

  • Your name and your program (PhD or MA) and any other profession/title you have (SSHRC scholar, teacher, etc.)
  • Your background/positionality (your personal investment in the research)
  • The issue/problem you have identified in your research
  • How your research addresses the problem
  • The impact your hope your research will have on society
