Campfire: Coordinating virtual staff weeks

Virtual staff weeks brought staff together during the COVID-19 pandemic. What can we learn from our experiences, and what does the future hold for this format? How can we boost engagement? And what can we gain from working with other higher education institutions? This session will provide a close-up look at how virtual staff weeks work, the benefits of partnership with other universities and the potential for global engagement.
