About the session

In the SDinGov community, we need to work well with all the different kinds of people who might use or be affected by public services.

During the pandemic, many of us have been working remotely and using video calls and online whiteboards to collaborate with colleagues, stakeholders and members of the public.

It is clear that making these activities properly accessible and inclusive online is at least very difficult. And may be impossible with current tools.

In this workshop we will look at what is and isn't working for us and our participants, and what demands we might have for better online collaboration tools.

In running the workshop we will, not ironically, use a few different online collaboration tools and workshop techniques to highlight some of the issues.

After SDinGov we will share the results of the workshop on the dxw blog.

Participant takeaways:

  • recognise the need to make online activities accessible and inclusive better
  • understand the current barriers that many people experience taking part online
  • have some tools and techniques to improve their own online workshops
  • have demands we can make on our organisations and suppliers to improve the online collaboration tools we use

  • Delivered: Live
  • Recorded: No
  • Has a participant number cap: 60
  • Includes: Interaction from participants
