Getting classroom participation has always been a tricky challenge for many educators. To add another layer of complexity, classrooms today have gone digital and online with the pandemic. Yet, students' participation is a critical aspect in creating an experiential and deep learning environment. How have educational professionals and administrators all over risen to the challenge? Also, what are students thinking about all this?
In our next VMUG, we will explore the role and use of virtual collaboration platforms in the classroom, and the impact they have on students' learning experience. We will learn how educational professionals and students have adapted and evolved with the virtual classroom in the last year, and how educational administrators have helped teachers and lecturers ease into and thrive in these virtual classroom environments.
You will meet and learn from your peers and these experienced educators:
Boyan Radnev, Intercultural Management undergraduate, Carinthia University of Applied Sciences, Austria
Dr. Maylyn Tan, Head of Academic Development, SIM Global, Singapore
Raymond Thomas, Director and Co-founder, Enible, Singapore

The quote “Strength lies in differences, not in similarities” manages to perfectly summarize how I observe cultures. My name is Boyan Radnev and as an undergraduate student in Intercultural Management and International Project Coordinator in SIETAR Austria I have worked within many intercultural teams and I have enjoyed every second of it. With the recent shift to digital technologies for the purposes of education and work the Miro platform has managed to completely shift my beliefs regarding the execution of virtual work.
