Have you heard the phrase “Zoom fatigue”? Odds are, you have—and you’ve probably experienced it first-hand. With COVID-19 forcing offices to transition to a remote work model, most, if not all, of our communication has shifted to Zoom and other digital platforms. But, with video conferencing becoming more commonplace and even mandatory, many of us are starting to feel drained from this new form of communication.

According to rhetoric expert Dr. Michelle Stein Teer, that’s because one hour on Zoom equals four hours in a classroom or office. Dr. Stein Teer believes that if we’re going to be using these kinds of tools to interact with one another, we need to start learning how to communicate effectively in the virtual realm.
