About this learning opportunity

Engaging participants in online collaborative team meetings can be challenging. Participants will engage in how to optimize online meetings through specific structures and processes. Intentionally structuring district through to school-based online meetings to engage participants in collaborative dialogue provides a common understanding of the roles and responsibilities of all members of the team, a clearly defined work plan, and a measure of accountability. Participants will learn how online meetings may also serve a variety of purposes, which impacts the structure of each meeting.
