Technology for virtual meetings
As well as choosing to travel more sustainably, we can all look to reduce the need for travel in the first place
Before any meeting, ask yourself ‘do we really need to discuss this face-to-face?’ – if the answer is ‘no’, opt for a virtual meeting instead.
Find out here how to make the most of the University online resources and tools to conduct meetings, stream events or hold interviews without the need to travel.
Tele/video-conferencing and web collaboration are all great ways to help reduce your own and your department’s environmental impact with the additional benefits of:
- cost savings for travel, accommodation and staff time
- ability to link several sites simultaneously
- access to remotely located experts
Tele and Video conferencing are increasingly popular options across the University. Departments usually make their own arrangements so please ask your Departmental Administrator in the first instance.
