    Strategy is often taught through case studies and lectures but there is an opportunity to engage students in new ways that increase their attention and retention of key concepts. In this session we will explore using different immersive learning techniques to teach strategy. Specifically we will explore applications such as virtual reality, mediated workshops, and activity-based learning as tools to engage students. We will hear from colleagues who can share the pros and cons of using these tools to teach strategy.<u1:p></u1:p><o:p></o:p>
