Video Conference Etiquette
Virtual conferencing calls are new and often challenging experiences for everyone. It’s ok to feel nervous, practise makes perfect!
Facilitator Participation – nominate a facilitator who invites attendees and shares the meeting agenda. The agenda can be shared in meeting notes.
Attendee Participation – remember this is a formal staff meeting and requires your full attention.
Sensitive information should not be discussed in open video conferences.
Consider Your Location
Consider using the ‘blur my background’ feature to hide a background.
Camera is On
This is a video conference, so cameras should remain on for the duration of the meeting. This is a formal request.
Avoid feedback by muting your microphone.
Agree a signal when someone wants to speak e.g. hands up.
Facilitators or Attendees should get verbal permission at the beginning of the call to record a video.
Engage in Chat
Ensure all participants feel included by encouraging feedback/questions/comments. Consider typing into chat as the event progresses.
