Guide to Virtual Collaboration
This guide, compiled by Guidehouse in the framework of EUKI project BEACON, provides an overview of advices for virtual collaboration. The trend towards more virtual events due to the pandemic is likely to manifest. Recent developments in communication technology have increased the number of benefits of digital tools, such as saving CO2 by abstaining from travelling to events.
The publication presents organisational and logistical considerations as well as insights on effective facilitation and tools to enhance the virtual experience. It informs how to foster the potential of virtual meetings to create richer collaboration processes. These guidelines can be used as a resource to design, implement, or supplement a range of virtual events including trainings, on-the-job mentoring, coaching, meetings, workshops, seminars, conferences, and more.
