Digital Workshops

Digital Workshop

The health and care sector operates using a mix of virtual, face-to-face and hybrid ways of working. The Leeds Health and Care Academy is supporting the workforce to operate in a digital environment through two workshops: Facilitating Hybrid Meetings and Leading Hybrid Teams.

The sessions aim to support individuals, teams, departments and whole organisations to embed good practice when working in hybrid settings – which occurs when teams do a combination of their work face-to-face and virtually.  

During the workshops, participants will have the opportunity to share their experiences, and collectively we will explore best practice and share practical tips for working effectively and inclusively in a hybrid world.

Facilitating Hybrid Meetings

In this session we will look at the different elements of face-to-face meetings, and how they translate into a hybrid setting. We will provide a space to stop and explore current activity, and look into good practice for in-person, virtual, and hybrid meetings.

This session is suitable for anybody currently facilitating meetings, whether they’re large, small, virtual or hybrid. This session will be repeated on a quarterly basis.

Session Dates:

  • Thursday 23rd March 9.30-11.30
  • Wednesday 7th June 9.30-11.30

Book your place via the Digital Workshop area of the Leeds Health and Care Learning Portal (you will need to create an account on the Portal to book onto the session).

Leading Hybrid Teams

These workshops enable learning around managing and leading teams in a hybrid working environment.

The main focus of these workshops is the sharing of best practice in relation to the management of individuals, the management of team dynamics, and management of change and ambiguity.

Session Dates:

  • Thursday 2nd February 9.30-11.30
  • Tuesday 16th May 9.30-11.30

Book your place via the Digital Workshop area of the Leeds Health and Care Learning Portal (you will need to create an account on the Portal to book onto the session).

Providing Care and Support to Service Users

We are currently developing learning around delivering remote support to patients/service users. As part of this development, we would like to speak to services who are delivering support to patients/service users using digital platforms, for example one-to-one video calls, online portals or online group work, telephone appointments or any other remote method of communication.

If you work for a service that delivers any form of support to patients/service users using hybrid technologies, we’d love to find out what this looks like in your service; what impact this has had on your teams and the people accessing your service, and explore any challenges you’re experiencing or have overcome.

If you’re interested in helping us to shape learning in this area, please fill out the form available via the button below, and we’ll be in touch.
