As more of our work moves online, and onto Zoom and other video conferencing specifically, it can be helpful to consider these tips to protect your meetings.

See this fantastic workshop from Hugh Kearns, on Staying Well (While Social Distancing) for excellent advice on staying well and productive at this strange moment (UCD Login required).
