Online Meetings and Discussions

02.05.2024 - 09.06.2024

Course description

Outcomes: Students are able to

  • Demonstrate a familiarity with meeting documents and proceedings
  • Communicate in online meetings, negotiations and discussions using associated vocabulary
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of different types of online meetings and discussions
  • Demonstrate an awareness of considerations that are particular to online meetings, negotiations and discussions


In this course, we explore online communication through three key topics – meetings, negotiations and discussions. We will identify the advantages and challenges presented in each, cover tips and strategies for success in each method, engage with theory and practical exercises, and evaluate the effectiveness of using these methods online.


This course is taught at B2 level, according to the Common European Framework (CEFR).

It is also hoped that students will come to the course with some knowledge of:

  • Meeting documents, proceedings, roles, phrases (in English)
  • Negotiation proceedings, relevant vocabulary and phrases
  • Ability to engage in discussions at length, in English

However, a reference information section will be made available on Moodle for those students who feel they need to cover some of the above-mentioned knowledge.
