Overview of Trainings and Workshops
AAU Trainings and Workshops provide a chance to get together with colleagues from throughout the Academy to share teaching ideas, inspiration and best practices. These professional development opportunities are available to all AAU faculty and are free of charge. A full-day conference is held prior to the start of fall semester and a half-day of Teaching Essentials workshops is held before the spring semesters; midterm workshops are held throughout the semester as requested by faculty and directors; online tutorials are available on demand. Certificates of completion for all AAU Faculty Development seminars are sent to each participant and cc'd to the curriculum office for inclusion in individual faculty files.
