Working with external experts such as academics, industry experts, cultural partners and technologists can support and enhance your students’ learning experience. The increased use of video conferencing during that last year has made access to professionals significantly easier. But knowing how to find, approach and collaborate with experts for the most valuable outcomes can be tricky.
