How to master meetings and collaboration in your new hybrid workplace

Course: Hybrid meetings and collaboration in Microsoft Teams

We have created a course focusing on strengthening your hybrid meeting skills. The course is targeted at companies that use Microsoft Teams

The last year has fundamentally changed the way we work together. We have all had to learn to navigate a whole new world of virtual meetings and how we can best collaborate and create engagement online. Now that Denmark and the world are reopening, some employees will flock back to the offices, while others will often take advantage of the flexibility to work from home.

It places new demands on how you and I communicate, chair the meeting and most importantly how we collaborate across platforms, personalities and physical locations. In this course, you will become fully aware of the competencies that help you create effective and committed hybrid meetings, how Microsoft Teams support the collaboration in the hybrid, and how you also become an effective meeting participant.
