My Elluminate mentor Jonathon Finkelstein coined this phrase recently and I’ve adopted it when describing what a moderator does in an Elluminate live session.
I will be presenting a hands on workshop for teachers in Victorian schools at the upcoming VITTA conference in Melbourne next week and I will demonstrate and share the tips and tricks of skilled moderators. There will be some juggling, some lion taming, some clowning around and maybe even a couple of magic tricks – all to be managed by the ringmaster – perhaps I should wear a top hat and tails and carry a big whip. Hmm, that appeals!
Now what would you include in the tips and tricks of a Ringmaster in a Three Ring Circus?
