Warmups and icebreakers can help foster a sense of community in the classroom, here are some of our favorites:

Course Introductions Template
With the MURAL MUSEUM of [Insert Course Title 🙂], you can create an intimate exhibition space for students (and you) to get to know their soon-to-be-classmates and share their expectations of the course. Not only will this template help deepen connections between students, it creates an artifact that you can reference and reflect upon as you move forward through your course.


We have a great Template library to get you started using MURAL in your classroom:

Class Lecture Toolkit

Peer-review Pinboard
Designed in a simple pin-board style, the template consists of ‘review zones’ each containing a space for a student to share their work and a space for another student (or students) to leave feedback.This template was created by Falmouth University to facilitate collaborative peer to peer feedback activities in both virtual and in-person sessions.
