Here are a few key things to remember if you use Google Apps for Business or Education with your faculty or staff:
- When conducting team meetings, assign a "notetaker" to take notes on a Google Doc. All members can take notes in a collaborative Google Document, so encourage your team to add comments, questions, and clarifications. If you use this for note taking during a workshop session, during intermittent breaks ask the presenter to clear up any questions or concerns. Finally, at the end of the meeting or workshop, notes can be shared in a "Weekly Meeting'' folder with your team.
- Use Google Forms to record any concerns/questions. Send out a Google Form in advance so a presenter is prepared with answers and afterwards, to capture lingering questions or concerns.
- Set short term goals for team members and be clear what needs to get accomplished by the next team meeting using Google Docs or Tasks.
