This guide offers advice on using and running teleconferences, beginning with background information on what teleconferencing can and cannot do; situations, systems, and applications; and how and why to use visuals. Ideas on how to run a teleconference are then presented. The preparation of a teleconference is discussed in terms of organizers and their responsibilities, familiarization, people to talk to, constructing a group, format and content, presentation, interaction, feedback, and coping with silence. Considerations in running the conferences that are addressed include the last-minute check, setting up the teleconference, during the teleconference, finishing off, ad hoc participants, and follow-up. A summary reviews both preparation and the session itself. Suggested procedures for working with small groups using the Telecon Conference Facility available in Australia and for forming a 'Telelink' group are attached. (LMM)
