Centennial Symposium Program 2019

The Center for Learning and Teaching joins the AUC community in celebrating 100 years of AUC. Participants attending the CLT Centennial Symposium will learn about how AUC faculty use teaching innovations in their classrooms, digital education and learn about how CLT supports teaching and learning at AUC. Sessions will include faculty showcases, panel sessions and interactive faculty-student discussions. Our invited speakers for the event Alec Couros (Professor, University of Regina, Canada), and Catherine Cronin (Strategic Education Developer, National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, Ireland) will each offer a keynote and a workshop open to the AUC community and external guests.
