Educational Development Initiatives and Innovations in Teaching at AUC

Educational Development Initiatives (EDI)

Since 2018, a wide range of professionalisation and teaching innovation projects have been supported at AUC under the broad label of Educational Development Initiatives (EDIs). These projects have been of great value in providing opportunities for development (of colleagues, the curriculum, our teaching) and have involved students centrally in many of the activities. Student-led initiatives may also be considered for this funding, provided their projects have named academic advisors.
