NOTE: Due to licensing restrictions, Watch Parties are only available for live, synchronous viewing and are unavailable for on-demand viewing after the Watch Party ends. 

A Watch Party is a social gathering for the purpose of watching a specific event or program. As part of the Learning Solutions Digital Experience After Hours Program, we'll be hosting a number of Watch Parties celebrating some of our favorite keynotes from past Learning Solutions Conferences. Watch the keynote together with people around the world, engaging with each other and expanding upon the content via chat.

For today's Watch Party, we revisit the Learning Solutions 2019 keynote from futurist comedian, writer, and activist Baratunde Thurston. Here's a description of the session:

Digital Storytelling Doesn’t Have to Be Boring

There’s too much content in the world; getting people’s attention is, like life, hard. Baratunde Thurston was a political blogger for four years, ran digital strategy for The Onion for five years, authored The New York Times bestselling book, How To Be Black, which continues to find life on Instagram, and lives to engage communities and tell stories in fun and empathetic ways. His energetic keynote will mix laughter with actionable insights that will transform how you see digital storytelling in your own work.

NOTE: Watch Parties are only available for live, synchronous viewing in the virtual platform.
