What are some recommendations for having hybrid meetings, with both on-campus and remote attendees?

A hybrid meeting is one where some of the attendees join in person, while others join remotely via videoconferencing. Below are a few simple tips for how to get the most out of your hybrid meetings:

Before the meeting

  • Share any documents to be used ahead of the meeting, so participants can follow along. Include them in the meeting invite, if possible.
  • If the meeting was scheduled via Google Calendar, select in a meeting room or joining virtually to indicate how you plan to attend:

Join meeting options

  • If you are attending in the room, bring your laptop to the meeting, log into Zoom, and mute your microphone to ensure the remote attendees can see you.
  • If your plans change and you switch from meeting in person to virtually (or vice versa), make sure to inform the meeting organizer or project manager (if applicable).

During the meeting

  • Remember to mute yourself if you’re not talking.
  • If you are in-person with other attendees in a room, make sure that only one person unmutes at a time to avoid audio feedback or echo.
  • If you are in a shared office, make sure that other non-attendees in the room are not being shown on the camera.
