Testimonial from Yoonjoo Cho, Teacher from the Aalto University Language Centre 

Being part of the Unite! community has given me extra perspectives and insights into online teaching and learning. Especially, the development and delivery of an online Unite! course was an interesting process for me as it allowed me to research and teach effective communication in virtual teamwork, which is an integral part of various workplaces in the 21st century. Having Unite! students in the course was also beneficial for Aalto students as they were able to share many interesting viewpoints and experiences, which enabled them to learn from each other’s different perspectives.

Testimonial from Sushant Rajpassi, Lecturer from the Aalto University Design Factory

The 2023 Unite Summer School was a transformative three-week experience where I had the pleasure of teaching a diverse cohort of students from various backgrounds in the realms of Product Development, Futuring, and Extended Reality. Guiding these students was a truly enriching experience, as I adapted my methods to their different backgrounds and was, in turn, inspired by their fresh perspectives, open-mindedness and initiative to learn by doing. Through our journey from concept to solutions, the students became equipped with new technological tools, showcasing their growing skills through visualizations and prototypes.

At Aalto Design Factory, we delved into collaborative innovation, and the Aalto + Unite community played a crucial role, offering a supportive network that enhanced our teaching and learning. Sharing expertise with fellow faculty members proved invaluable, helping to refine and enrich the curriculum. This teaching experience was not just enjoyable but an educational evolution for me, thanks to this platform's supportive and dynamic ecosystem of educators and practitioners.
