Online Learning Etiquette

The majority, if not all, of your leadership programme will be delivered online. The following information is intended to ensure you and your cohort you get the most out of the session and learn together in a safe and confidential space.
Trust and openness within the group is key from the outset, therefore, with this in mind, we will support the group to develop some shared ground rules at the start of the session which will provide a foundation for success.
Based on our experience of working with groups we offer the following as a start and would invite everyone to think about what is missing for them.

  • We will ensure confidentiality of the discussions
  • We are all responsible for our learning
  • We will help the development of others
  • We will show mutual respect
  • We will actively and attentively listen
  • We share ‘air’ time

There may be some attendees who are also from your organisation. We want to ensure that the group remains a safe space and you feel able to share your experiences without concern about implications in your workplace. Therefore, please ensure you are able to describe your experiences without naming individuals from your organisation. If you are listening to another member of your organisation sharing their experiences, please attempt to focus your support and reflections on the issue at hand and refrain from making reference to the local context or specific individuals in the organisation.

The following are some practical requests to enable the session to run smoothly:

  • You can attend the session using your computer, or tablet.
  • Please be online at least 5 minutes before the start of the session.
  • If you are late or have technical questions, please email; [email protected] and someone will respond to assist you.
  • Do not share the meeting login details with anyone else. They are only for registered members of the group.
  • Think about your background. Is there anything you wouldn’t want a guest to see?
  • Please do not run other programmes (work/other internet pages, etc.) or use other electronic devices while you are attending.
  • For your own concentration, and that of fellow participants, try to be in a room away from pets and other family members or flatmates.
  • Please mute your microphone when you are not speaking. And remember to re-mute after you’ve spoken. This will help reduce the bandwidth of the session and ensure sound is clear to all those taking part.
  • If you have a question or contribution, please raise your hand, and wait to be invited before asking.
  • Please note that the teacher may choose to mute you if you have forgotten and your background noise is interfering with the class. This is to ensure everyone can hear and get the most from the class.
  • Please do not record the sessions. All content in the session is confidential and should not be shared.
  • To ensure that the session goes smoothly for everyone, the facilitator reserves the right to remove anyone from the session whose behaviour is disruptive.
