A Starter Guide for
Engaging Online Meetings
Learning & Leading in the Virtual Classroom
Put on your "best face" when participating in online meetings and make decisions about how to represent yourself on screen.
Students and adults should provide their “best face” when presenting themselves in public on the web. We all want to look good. Sometimes however we just don’t WANT or NEED to be seen on screen.
These resources help you reflect on visual digital identity and help you make choices that reflect your priorities.
The skillful practitioner should consider when seeing faces is the best way to meet your learning objective. We don’t necessarily need to always see a video image.
Presenting yourself well on video is a basic employability skill. As an equity issue we need to also ensure all students have the skills necessary to present our best faces including, when appropriate, framing, lighting and backgrounds.
