The Future of Collaboration – Effective Teamwork for a Hybrid Workplace

This module introduces participants to a range of perspectives, frameworks, and tools that enable effective collaboration in hybrid contexts with people from a range of cultures, personalities, and working styles. Participants will then have to apply what they have learned to a live team project.

Working collaboratively both online and offline is a key skill in the future of work due to the advent of hybrid and remote working. This module approaches collaborative working from a human-centred perspective, by providing a range of frameworks and tools that can be used to increase understanding and empathy between team members. It also introduces participants to online collaboration tools that will both expand their skillset and enable more effective hybrid working. Participants will then work in teams to apply what they have learned in a live project so they can develop and practice their own approach to collaborative working.
