Hear From AUNE’s Innovative Faculty February 26

POSTPONED UNTIL FEBRUARY 26.   The second annual Innovation Reveals Itself program, hosted by AUNE’s Center for Academic Innovation (CAI), is set for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, February 5, in the Community Room.

The event will showcase faculty-led innovative teaching and learning initiatives at AUNE. It’s an opportunity for faculty to share, with the campus community, how their work aligns with our institutional purpose of providing transformative education through scholarship, innovation, and community action for a just and sustainable society and takes us into blue ocean the space where the competition is irrelevant because it doesn’t exist.
