Getting Started

Microsoft Teams is an industry-based software that facilitates collaboration, from chat, discussion, team meetings, artefact generation, and project management. As we have transitioned teaching and learning online, we have seen a significant increase in the amount of Microsoft Teams that have been created in this space. As a result, there is a lot of information from many different sources, so we are consolidating this information in one space to support you in your implementation of Microsoft Teams for teaching and learning.

What support is currently available?

  • Weekly training sessions on using Microsoft Teams in teaching and learning for the next four weeks (see ‘Whats On?’). These will be facilitated in Microsoft Teams where you will actively experience the different functionality; to do this you will be invited to a Team the day prior to the session.
  • Student support resource has been created for you to add as a Tab in Microsoft Teams so students are aware of why they are using Teams and the different functionality within it. It also provides links to additional resources if the student requires further training.

What use cases are available for your review?

What’s next?

We understand you may be considering the use of Microsoft Teams; the staff support resource is being updated to support your design and showcase different ways in which Microsoft Teams can support collaborative learning in your unit.

Already using Microsoft Teams?

We are gathering information from Unit Chairs and teaching staff that are currently using Microsoft Teams in their teaching and learning so we can showcase the different use cases. If you would like to share your experience, please email
