Online & Recorded FIS
Naomi C., Ireland
Has anybody had to do their introductory session online yet ? Has anybody thought about recording themselves talking and sending it to possible future students or post it live on Facebook ?

I don’t know if I’d do a recorded version as I believe it can work as a 2-way evaluation when it’s live. The family I’m meeting tonight has an underlying belief that traditional is better, so I want to be sure I address their concerns so they will have trust going forward if they decide. But I’m wondering also what others do…?
Recording an FIS is no problem whatsoever.
The FIS is an information event, mostly used as a marketing tool. In totality, its design is to explain what the program is, demonstrate what students learn, introduce SM as a whole, give people a sense of what’s involved etc. I’ve never considered the FIS to be a ‘lesson’ as such. So, yes, you can record an FIS.

I have done a couple. What’s worked for me is having fun colorful slides to go with what I’m saying as I’m explaining things. I also get them engaged. I ask them to take notes because I will ask them questions later and I ask them to stand up and walk around the house when we get to the part that talks about not being musical and they walk around while saying “i haven’t got a musical bone in my body” just things I’m trying out to keep them engaged and paying attention. 🙂
