Conducting interviews and campus talks/teaching demos with remote candidates

Interviews

Use a Scheduled Meeting in Outlook. A Scheduled Meeting will allow everyone invited to the meeting to be able to use Chat and share their screens without the need for the candidate to be a member of a search committee team or to have a Microsoft account. You can either have everyone be remote and join the meeting, the committee members at Wooster could all be in a room equipped with cameras (or request a kit if in a room without cameras), or some of the committees’ members could be in a room together and others participate remotely along with the candidate.

Campus Talks/Teaching Demos

Teaching Demos

Let the candidate propose the meeting software being used and to set up the meeting. This allows the candidate to use a platform they are most comfortable with. If Wooster students are involved in a teaching demo, provide the candidate with the student’s email addresses so that the candidate can invite them to the meeting when organizing it. When the meeting time arrives the Wooster participants join the meeting (most likely platforms would be Teams, Zoom, Google Meet) and participate in the demo.  It is important to remind candidates to verify that they will be using a Zoom account that is not limited in terms of meeting time, as free personal accounts are.

Campus Talks

Let the candidate propose the meeting software being used and to set up the meeting. This allows the candidate to use a platform they are most comfortable with. Provide the candidate with the email address of the committee member that will be connecting their laptop to the projector in the on-campus viewing space. When the meeting time arrives the designated committee member will join the meeting so that those attending in the viewing space can watch the talk.

Assistance

We encourage search coordinators to contact either Educational Technology or Technology Services in advance of interview and presentation sessions to assure a successful technology-enabled meeting.
