Lessons Learned: Online CoPs 2020

Due to the Covid-19 lockdown and the continuing prevalence of online meetings in preference to face-to-face meetings, we are all becoming accustomed to virtual engagements. But are we getting better at them, and are we getting the most out of them? How has online participation affected community of practice engagements, which are based on principles such as interactive participation, networking and collaboration? Do we hear all voices? AT BRIDGE we felt it was time to pause and reflect on these questions, and to this end we sent out a survey to people who had attended CoPs between April and mid-July 2020.
