too real
Angela Richardson
24:53
Do you lead all of your meetings standing up, Amy?
Ida Balderrama-Trudell
26:56
TY Amy
Tara Milliken
26:57
I would also ask participants what they might need for the meeting to be most effective/accessible to them prior to the start (if possible). That might help.
April McHugh
27:22
Zoom has an Accessibility tab in the Settings.
Ida Balderrama-Trudell
27:23
Yes, Emiliy. ty
Tara Milliken
28:01
Also not assuming that participants want to/can show their environment if using video platforms.
Ida Balderrama-Trudell
28:12
yes Tara!
Mari Magler
28:13
McBurney Center staff happy to brainstorm with people on accessibility issues. Also some tips available on: https://it.wisc.edu/learn/guides/accessible-content-tech/
Misha Finney
28:14
Asking what tools they are using (MANY PHONES!)

Thank you all!
Dominique Haller

Do you know of platforms who are more phone friendly than others?
Misha Finney
30:38
Once you know one, you know what to ask!
Mari Magler
30:57
Just emailed it Kala!
Alison Caffrey
30:57
Also helpful to remember that platforms may come and go, so don't get too attached. :)
Emily Dickmann
31:15
Great point, Alison.
Ida Balderrama-Trudell
32:21
lol
Amy Shannon
32:22
Creepy!
Rick Kempf
32:25
Weird
Tara Milliken
33:13
If you don't have those things, I'm a big fan of stacking my computer on top of books for meetings/trainings.
Soraya Willems-Neal
33:34
Great tip Tara
Emily Dickmann
33:35
Excellent suggestion, Tara. I have a few stacks of books with me now.

I do have a separate keyboard
Tara Milliken
34:06
No external webcam, but a separate keyboard, so I can stack my laptop higher on books.
Matthew Douglas
34:07
seperate
Helena Manning
34:08
No external camera but I use a box under my laptop to raise it up for meetings
Angela Richardson
34:09
no but I have my laptop up on a pile of books
Michael Kruse
34:32
phone as a separate participant - that's next level
Kristin Dalby
34:35
a laptop tray helps
Larry Jolón
36:55
Yes on the laptop tray. Cheaper than getting a stand-up desk.
Tara Milliken
38:42
Headphone mics can be a good (reasonably priced) alternative.
Rick Kempf
38:53
I always use ear buds for my web meetings
Mari Magler
40:26
I find I get kicked off my 5G connection more than my other (go figure)
TJ Sargent
41:00
Super helpful comparison table on UW supported meeting/presentation services and features: https://kb.wisc.edu/page.php?id=45390
Tara Milliken
41:14
Thanks for sharing this, TJ!
Emily Dickmann
41:20
Thanks, TJ.
Bryan Zaramba
42:08
I am seconding Bianca's question in the Q&A. Our team meetings (~8 people) have been markedly less collaborative due to mic muting and not wanting to talk over each other.
Jean Starobin
42:10
That would be great to have list of some of these suggestions.
Dominique Haller
42:10
Smartphone
Elaine Goetz
42:21
We got a long ethernet cord, so that when my husband and I are both using zoom, one of us uses the ethernet cord to help the burden of our wifi
Tom Bryan
42:47
https://fast.com/
Julie Supernaw
42:47
Helpful hint for making / keeping eye contact… I drew eyes on a post-it note and stuck it above / near my camera…
Ilsa May
42:48
I've had more issues with WebEx on my iPhone and iPad, but Zoom and Google Hangouts work great.
Tom Bryan
43:15
Biggest downside to MS teams, in my opinion: no call-in feature
Kala Grove
43:53
Bryan - yes it is a great question- we are saving that for a bit later and we will be sure to ask Amy
Megan Grill
43:59
I like my headset because it helps drown out background noises in my home
Misha Finney
44:27
Phones: I think practicing with a phone on the platform you are using is important (like canvas- it is different on a phone, and knowing how it is different will allow you to better design event/experience).
Emily Dickmann
44:30
Sorry - will try to do that later!
Laura Norton
51:00
My husbands work does themed meetings for their zoom backgrounds
Ilsa May
51:58
I've also heard of outfit themes.
Bryan Zaramba
52:59
Outfit themes got very controversial on my team! Not everyone has very robust wardrobes and people felt excluded.
Emily Dickmann
53:51
A very important point, Bryan.
Dominique Haller
53:54
Good point , Bryan.
Kala Grove
54:54
Great point Bryan - I think giving folks many ways to engage is important
Kala Grove

Emily Dickmann
01:01:25
Thanks for that suggestion, Mo.
Kala Grove

Kala Grove
01:02:19
I can’t copy & past from the chat so if anyone has shared resources, please do email me at kala.grove@wisc.edu and I’ll include in a follow-up email
Emily Dickmann
01:02:45
Excellent!
Dominique Haller
01:05:41
I find that chats are a surprisingly good way to foster exchange for big meetings. The raise hand button is also very helpful.
Jean Starobin
01:07:06
It does.
Emily Dickmann
01:07:13
Me too - it’s challenge for me to facilitate and watch chat at the same time. I hear you, Mo.
Alison Rice
01:08:17
Can ask someone to help manage the chat
Heather Danielson
01:08:50
If we are doing a larger webinar, we have a person who their only responsibility is to monitor the chat
Jean Sink
01:09:12
We did a webinar series where one person was the primary presenter and the other was the lead on watching the chat, Q&A, taking attendance, etc.
David Wright-Racette
01:10:24
We held our admitted student visit day virtually and it worked really well to have a few of our staff and students in the chat while a separate person presented slides on our program. That was the presenter could just focus on the presentation and it was also nice to have that interaction between current and admitted students at the same time
Kala Grove
01:10:24
We are sharing when it is relevant to her speaking points, and sharing other questions for the later Q&A
David Wright-Racette
01:11:15
To echo what Jean Sink just said
Ilsa May
01:12:52
A fun game for colleagues, friends, or family - virtual bingo! https://myfreebingocards.com/virtual-bingo
Emily Dickmann
01:13:03
Thanks, Ilsa!

mix it up and better preparation
David Wright-Racette

Research and play around with some of the virtual games. And practice!
Hannah Baker
01:19:35
email my supervisor to ensure we have better deliberate design for our Monday meeting!
Chynna Lewis
01:19:35
Being tied and connected to the purpose of the meeting. Refining my purpose.
Heather Owens
01:19:35
How to create rapport with people who I didn’t know in person prior to our current situation but will be working with extensively in the future.
Catherine Turng
01:19:36
1) prepare list of questions/agenda for meeting 2) standing desk set-up
Betsy Wood
01:19:39
Energy, makeup! Then external camera.
Karen Thomas
01:19:39
1. Encourage more engagement (informal and formal); 2. Provide a space where everyone's voices can be heard (validation is key!)
Carmela Diosana
01:19:40
DO check in, check out questions, & learn tech
Alicia Johanning
01:19:46
Less meetings, change up the "structure" of meetings
Amy Shannon
01:19:46
external mic and camera, investigate tech

Laura Juszczyk
01:19:49
1. eye contact 2. utilize more sharing docs (jamboard, etc) in meeting
Becky Smith
01:19:51
Be more intentional with planning purpose; try a new activity from the options you shared

Be more mindful of the assumptions I make about access, technology, equity in using virtual spaces.
Morgan Keller
01:20:11
Share meaningful object, explore mural.co for developing in area of virtual facilitation
Ilsa May
01:20:12
1. ask for a check-in or contribution by every attendee2. try a new creative activity or game
Darby Sugar
01:20:15
increase engagement - chat or wheel spinner thing!
Helena Manning
01:20:16
1. Stand up 2. Eye Contact Next month 1. Virtual engagement/game (i.e. post-it-notes)
Jean Sink
01:21:13
Thank you for all you've shared!
Karen Thomas
01:22:47
I think also articulating that trust to the team is helpful--then, people may feel more accountable for their engagement
David Wright-Racette
01:25:17
Not sure what the technical piece would look like but potentially allowing introverted folks to ask questions as anonymous user rather than attached to their name in the chat.
Marie Koko
01:27:12
What David said
Karen Thomas
01:27:31
YES to allll the AGENDAS and prep work!
Kala Grove
01:28:10
David - yes, a google form could work to do that well. It could be live, and anonymous
Anya Piotrowski
01:28:37
My supervisor & I have a shared google doc so for each meeting date we add what we want to talk about so we can both see it in advance/in live time/refer back to it. Highly recommend! And completely applicable when working with students.
Misha Finney
01:29:52
Great idea!
Karen Thomas
01:30:16
Like that idea, Anya!
Amy Zwaska
01:30:55
