Distance Collaboration Conversation a Success!

On Friday, November 11, the Office of Digital Learning, in partnership with the Digital Learning Commons and the ACTT, facilitated a community-initiated conversation about distance collaboration and remote work. A summary of the meeting has been posted to the Office of Digital Learning blog. The conversation was attended by more than 30 people—at both campuses and online—and covered topics including:

  • How to run virtual meetings;
  • How to provide leadership for virtual and hybrid teams;
  • How to build strong relationships with colleagues at a distance;
  • The benefits and obstacles of distance collaboration;
  • How to take advantage of the diversity of expertise available throughout the Middlebury community.

The conversation was a first step in moving toward a better understanding of the affordances of the widespread Middlebury ecosystem. Look for other opportunities to contribute to the ongoing conversation coming soon.
