This is a CLT event in collaboration with the University of Delaware (PBL@UD). This intensive two-day workshop experience is open to all faculty members and facilitated by international experts in the field of problem-based learning from the University of Delaware for STEM and other fields. PBL is a learner-centered teaching practice where students collaboratively engage in solving complex and challenging real-world problems. The goal is to facilitate knowledge and skill transfer to our faculty members through this immersive and interactive experience. 

Details of the application and selection process will be announced shortly. 

The Annual AUC Research Conference invites graduate student and faculty research submissions on the theme of "community." The aim of the conference is to provide an exchange platform for relevant, interdisciplinary and multi-stakeholder research and policy debates on the region’s community development efforts. The conference seeks to identify success indicators and best practices and elicit innovative solutions that solve critical community challenges facing the region. The conference includes both plenary sessions targeting an audience of policymakers, the business community and civil society, as well as parallel academic sessions targeting researchers and students.

The Academy of Liberal Arts (ALA) is committed to delivering a high quality and transformative educational experience for students to help them become globally engaged citizens.  The ALA Symposium brings together into one cohesive and connective thread, the scholarship of ALA faculty members, who showcase AUC’s focus on the liberal arts and language instruction. Accordingly, research, creative work, integrative learning practices, community engagement, pedagogy, and cross-disciplinary collaborative partnerships are the foci of high-impact practices within the ALA. 

This competition invites undergraduate and graduate students to present their research using posters. Research posters are a common medium of presentation which engage a "walking" audience through text and attractive visuals. The research posters will be judged by a panel of evaluators, and the awardees celebrated in the closing session of Research Week. For more information, click here
