Active learning promotes student engagement. COVID-19 afforded not only challenges but opportunities to utilize technology to create a virtual learning environment where students could interact with classmates. Padlet facilitated such interaction through classmates sharing short videos, drawings and designs, and student-created infographics. Several of these assignments promoted diversity, equity and inclusion topics as well. For this presentation, I will share sample assignments on Padlet along with student feedback, and I will also discuss how these assignments (and others) could be utilized in other disciplines.
