Virtual meetings in teaching – a participatory workshop

Thursday, 31 May 2018 10:00 - 12:00 Design Factory, The Studio Betonimiehenkuja 5c Public event

In the workshop, participants discuss about the challenges and potential solutions related to virtual meetings. The discussion focus is on teaching and learning meetings with both contact and online participants.

Preliminary discussion topics:

  • How the active participation of both contact and online participants can be supported in virtual meetings?
  • What kinds of challenges do teachers and students face when having virtual meetings on courses?
  • How could these challenges be solved?

In the workshop, we apply the World café method. The event is based on dialogue between the participants. Participants share their views and look for new ways of working in small groups – circling during the workshop from one group to another.
