OCSLD Online Cafe

  • OCSLD Online Cafe banner

  • The Online Cafe is a Google Meet room, open to any member of Brookes staff who’d like to join us for a conversation, to share experiences of remote working through the current pandemic. Please bring your own drink! We’re opening the Cafe on Tuesdays at 3pm and Thursdays at 11am throughout the month of May. There are three new topics for conversations, each one was proposed by our cafe visitors in April. 


    ‘Working with students remotely’ will share effective approaches and the challenges of teaching and providing other services to students from a distance and online.


    ‘Networking during lockdown’ will share experiences and approaches to keeping your networks (at Brookes and beyond) live while working remotely.


    ‘Supporting teams and individuals’ will share best practices and approaches that work to support the wellbeing of others or the effectiveness of others’ work as part of projects and teams when working remotely.

    Choose a date/time below that suits you best and book your seat in the cafe by contact ocsld@brookes.ac.uk. We look forward to seeing you there!
