Student Engagement Consultancy Sessions from Friday, Feb 14

The Tech Ambassadors recognize that student engagement is a persistent area of interest for teachers in virtual school. In this peer-to-peer sharing session, we brainstormed strategies you’ve used to keep students engaged during virtual school. We took turns sharing them out using a group whiteboard tool and grouped them by category. Then, we discussed the options and clarified how we can use them in our own courses.

What is the quickest way to set up an online meeting with Teams?

First of all, you don’t have to download the Teams app for its functions. To set up a meeting, you will only need to use the Outlook Calendar invite.

Here are two ways of doing it, one through web and another through the Outlook app.
