Visual collaboration belongs in the classroom regardless of whether classes are in-person, remote, or hybrid. The challenge that many have faced is successfully facilitating this collaboration in a way that enhances the learning experience and increases student engagement. Many educators have brought creativity and innovation to their exercises, class structure, and assignments, so students are not only enjoying their classes but learning collaboration and wider employability skills along the way to serve them in their future careers. Ready to be inspired?
