You can also do this easily with Camtasia for Mac, but you must record the video separately. Steps: 
  1. Capture the screen with Camtasia, and simultaneously record the speaker with a camcorder.
  2. Bring the video from the camcorder into your Mac and import into Camtasia.
  3. Drop the camcorder video on to the timeline, then use the crop and resize features to position the talking head where you want it on the screen.
You may find it more effective to just show the speaker video on screen when necessary. It's up to you.
