Engaging Effectively Remotely With Other Humans

Covid-19 has pushed further up my to do list tracking down and sharing effective mediums that enhance relationships and foster collaboration, communication and learning where those involved don't work in the same place. 

My workplace has been an effective early adopter of Teams technology; using it for camera on meetings and the comments box creates opportunity for emoji / chat engagement too.  This works well for meetings / 'tell' type session

I am keen to learn from others both techniques and technologies that you know work well especially where the nature of face to face time together in the same location would have benefitted from

  • reading body language and 
  • groups having activities (role plays, break out sessions, use of whiteboard or flip charts). 

Thanks in advance!
