Working, teaching and learning online
What is teleworking and how does it differ from working in the office?
Teleworking means working on distance or from home. Working from home and meeting over the internet requires extra elements as regards to the work routine and communication patterns that you otherwise have in your teams. Teleworking means a different work environment and it cannot be expected that everyone masters it, so let everyone in the team try and learn. Generally speaking, teleworking requires more formalized and clarified roles and time to learn and reflect on how the roles are working. But more than that, it also requires a positive and encouraging atmosphere. Encourage each other more than usual!
