Standup meetings are a great way to run an in person meeting while being cognizant of teacher’s time. The goals of standup meetings are to quickly give necessary information, allow teachers to voice concerns, share ideas, or celebrations, and finish as quickly as possible. Standing up during these meetings makes it uncomfortable for the meeting to last for a long time. This style of meeting can be utilized virtually. Teachers are now using video conferencing tools most of the day. The last thing teachers want to add to their schedule is a long and complicated virtual meeting, however, it is important for faculty members to see each other and feel connected. You can transition the standup meeting to a virtual environment by following these simple guidelines: set a timer, discuss only important information that cannot be shared in an email, allow teachers to share frustrations, celebrations, or ideas quickly and end the call under fifteen minutes.
