University staff have, since lockdown began, attended on average 64.1 per cent more meetings1 than over the same period last year. Whether on Zoom or on Microsoft Teams, these meetings cover a range of topics, but every single one of them2 features at least one of the entries on this handy, cut-out-and-keep bingo card. Our spotter’s compendium has been scientifically3 designed to keep your spirits up4 through any remaining exam boards or planning meetings, right through to the start of the next academic year.

You’re welcome.

Love it :-) Additional Suggestions could also include * Advance excuses proffered for (a) unsupervised roaming child/children or (b) imminent Amazon* delivery * Colleagues talking over each other * Cats bombing the keyboard * Muted and invisible colleagues who are apparently "logged in" :-)
Outstanding suggestions!
Thanks Emma Rees what a fantastic idea and will bring some humour to some very dry Zoom meetings. I’m going to share it with our programme team next week!
Thanks, Lyndsey!
Really excellent, I love 'Rictus grin of farewell while desperately seeking the "leave meeting" button', absolutely classic
Thanks- made me smile and I'm normally so grumpy!
