In this video, let’s explore a strategy where we not only encourage each other but we also learn from each other. Remember that every faculty member brings a unique perspective to the team. When we as educators can appreciate the value our colleagues bring to the table, our students are going to experience the full power of collaboration. They will also be more likely to adopt this attitude as professionals.
