Join us on Friday 9th April, 1-2pm, to talk about working remotely using the hashtag #DLNETChat
With most learning and participation teams throughout the cultural heritage sector shifting to almost exclusive online engagements, many of us have focused on tools, platforms and online delivery skills to get to grips quickly with the world we’re in at the moment. It’s been quite a ride for team leaders as well as colleagues, who not only had to get their heads around how to create online content for their different audiences, but who also needed to create new work patterns, communication channels and workflows in an immensely short period of time.
We therefore wanted to use our DLNET chat in April to take a look at the ‘backstage stuff’ that comes with working remotely, i.e. all the things that are not visible to the public but that are so central to keeping teams going.
- What have you learned about your own working styles and patterns as a team since the UK went into its first lockdown this time last year?
- How have teams managed to pivot to working remotely, often working collaboratively with colleagues across their organisation?
- Have you come across particularly useful ways of working together on a project, or on resources and other content, while working from home?
- Have you discovered particularly useful tools for collaborative remote working?
- Did you and your team develop any strategies to keep those crucial social interactions going that keep teams motivated and can fight any sense of isolation?
- Was there something you have found out about remote team work that you wish you had known this time last year?
Watch out for the pre-chat poll on the DLNET twitter account next Wednesday, along with emails to the JISCMAIL lists. Join in with the voting to kick off April’s DLNET Chat, and share what worked and what continues to be challenging while many of us are still working from home!
