#PRCN2020: Participating in and Managing a Pure User Group Virtually

Presented by

Tania Wilmann, Monash University, Australia

About this talk

The arrival of COVID-19 threw changes at many of us; a significant change being no longer able to interact with people directly and the rise of the "Zoom" meeting and virtual interactions. Whilst this may have been a challenge for other Pure User Groups, the Australian and New Zealand (ANZ) Pure User Group have been meeting virtually for over 3 years. Participaing in virtual meetings and managing a user group meeting virtually can have challenges such as getting user participation, allowing robust discussion, determining consensus on issues and managing the mute button. This presentation will explore the challenges and offer some of the strategies which have been used by the ANZ Pure User Group to both encourage participation and allow for effective management of virtual meetings.
