This paper presents the latest educational advances and research in a nutshell presented at the Education Track of the Eurographics Conference held in Lisbon in 2016. The works described correspond to approaches to Computer Graphics education that are unconventional in some way and attempt to tackle unsolved problems and challenges regarding the role of arts in computer graphics education, the role of research-oriented activities in undergraduate education, and the interaction among different areas of computer graphics, as well as their application to courses or extra-curricular activities. We present related work addressing these topics and report experiences, successes, and issues in implementing the approaches.
