Establish trust and respect in any video meeting by honoring people's feelings
This resource gives you a collection of a variety of check-ins for starting an online video meeting. Click on the icon to access our carefully-curated list.
Using a check-in protocol involves asking each participant to select an element of an image as a way to give insight on their mood, feelings or thoughts in the present moment.
It helps “take the temperature of the room” and builds class rapport. Strategic daily use of check-ins can help build trust and respect that creates a vibrant online community.
After a week or two, challenge participants to create and share their own emotional check-in procotol. You might wind up with a BTS, Stranger Things, or Spiderman check in to use next.
