Understanding How the Environment and Tools Affect Effective Collaboration in Higher Education

Wayne Chung, Georgia Institute of Technology

In higher education, our responsibility is to provide the best practices and tools to the next generation of innovators. Great results occur when multidisciplined and multi-talented people work together on a common goal. This session investigates how the context of the space and tools of communication and collaboration can be maximized in the higher education teaching environment.
