Karen Butler

Online chat does not create the same feeling or inspire those little of topic comments that make you feel connected.
Shirley Fraser
20:38
Yes, virtually all for me but loneliness the worst
Lindsey Harlow
20:43
Staying physically active
Thomas Hewitt
21:04
Agree with online chat, it's not the same as being in person and having that feeling of talking face to face if this makes sense?
Toby Doncaster
21:22
finitely, Thomas
Toby Doncaster
21:33
*Definitely
Lee Andrews
21:34
Is the poll only available for those using the 'in-app' version? I have launched using browser.
Thomas Hewitt
21:45
Loneliness is another strong one as well, you're right Shirley!
Alicia Hamilton
24:36
Stressful managing home schooling and work
Toby Doncaster
25:14
I agree Alicia, I think the workplace allows you to switch off from home and vice versa
Alicia Hamilton
25:57
That's so true
Sarah Hassall
26:56
on Outlook you can delay sending of emails - I haven't been able to on 365
Jemima Philbrow
28:08
I've saved a fortune on petrol!
Rachael Burt
28:23
More stressed working from home - found more has been expected!
Shirley Fraser
28:28
I'm more stressed working from home; the walk to work was good for my whole health.
Roger Cookson
28:29
If you have an Office 365 subscription you can download the desktop software will allow you to control timing of e-mail dispatch
Amanda Davis
28:42
YEs I have done very little riving, tried to cycle much more
Sarah Hassall
29:01
Thank you Roger Cookson - I'll look at that
Amanda Davis
29:51
I feel more tired working from home and have to stop every now and then. maybe because there was always a fair bit of interaction in the office with people coming for assistance or answers, so I had more breaks from the computer screen
Alicia Hamilton
30:05
Yes Shirley that's so true and shorter deadlines are set and you are expected to be available after working hours
cyd vyvyan
30:18
I agree - headaches from so much screen time
Karen Butler
30:38
Amanda Davis Yes I agree.
Alicia Hamilton
30:44
back aches too
carla almeida
30:52
I agree too much screen time
owen hansford
31:03
Now I am back at college the virtual world is still operating for senior managers while I am in. Its difficult managing virtual world and real world now.
james foster
31:17
WFH is very tricky. At the moment i'm participating in this webinar and teaching my son year 5 maths. I can't wait to get back to work
Katarina Kalafutova
31:20
lower lewel of interaction with others
Amanda Davis
31:22
Definitely back aches too!
Jemima Philbrow
31:36
Hi Owen from City College! :)
Jane McAlpine
32:00
Hi Owen and Jem
owen hansford
32:24
Hi
Matthew Yarwood
32:29
Totally agree Owen
Harriet Hadley
33:01
Hi Roberto, you will be a sent a link to the recording after the webinar
Roger Cookson
33:09
Headaches may relate to brightness and contrast settings on your laptop/monitor - it may be worth trying modifying settings. I also have blue light glasses, which helps me
Rachael Burt
33:22
I've been told I have to go in 2 days a week but work remotely rest of week - yet all tasks can be done remotely!
Roger Cookson
36:04
Any suggestions about places to get further information about working/teaching remotely would be much appreciated
Karen Butler
36:18
Thank you. Very relevant and raised several good points I need to consider for my own work-life balance.
Emma Chicken
36:44
I have made a timetable for working at home so I am scheduling my away from my desk time.
Lindsey Harlow
36:57
I have found it as easy to have off the cuff chats from home using Teams (or any messaging system) It's ok just to pop a message to someone you would normally bump into and just say "hi". But that is a culture change in itself.
Karen Butler
37:16
Emma Chicken, what an excellent idea.
Shirley Fraser
38:43
A great idea, Emma, but to do that I have to go on the laptop and then I instinctively check emails from students so they know we are caring about them, so I never really switch off.
Rachael Burt
39:12
I reminded learners to contact in the day as we are entitled to breaks too.
Emma Chicken
39:15
I know what you mean, Shirley.
Helen Brennan
39:50
Thank you, Really helpful session.
Fiona Bardell
39:58
My flatmates set up "Corona-co" at our dining room table while we have been locked down.It's nice to all work together and get an 'office' buzz - even though we all do very different jobs!
Lee Andrews
40:00
I've found I'm working more hours and at irregular times as a result of remote working demands (as mentioned earlier - others emailing out of normal working hours) and the feeling of needing to be responsive.
Amanda Davis
40:17
I would have said that I am quite an extrovert before all this but I have had to re-evaluate this as I have been quite happy at home with virtual chat.
Sarah Stevens
41:15
I personally can't wait to get back in to work and the classroom. I miss the buzz
Jemima Philbrow
41:17
I'm the same Amanda, I institutionalised really quickly.
Shirley Fraser
41:51
I agree, Sarah, I volunteered to go back to look after vulnerable students but wasn't taken up on it.
Amanda Davis
42:35
I just found it a surprise Jemima
Terri George
43:31
Using the phone is a great idea. I speak to my team at least twice a week on the phone
owen hansford
44:10
Whats App groups has really helped with off the cuff communication.
Joy Hudson
44:40
I feel the same Sarah, I really miss the buzz of the classroom.
Alicia Hamilton
45:45
Phone is helpful yes to connect. Our team is doing a social distance lunch or breakfast meet up now lockdown is improved
Karen Butler
45:45
My team have a zoom quiz most weeks in the evening to allow chat that is not necessarily work related and more relaxed like it might be in the staffroom on normal working.
Rachael Burt
45:45
Thank you - very helpful.
Harriet Hadley
46:00
Thank you Gary that was excellent
Joy Hudson
46:01
We had hardly any team meetings remotely - that made home working much more was isolating.
