Congratuations and welcome to Danielle Connell! SRP GRANTS Workshops Upcoming Ideas for Workshops 13th Annual Association of Atlantic Universities Teaching Showcase Acadia University is pleased to host the 13th annual Association of Atlantic Universities Teaching Showcase, on Saturday October 24, 2009 Graduates in the 21st Century face a world of increased complexity, uncertainty, and global interdependence. This world needs independent thinkers and creative problem-solvers. Universities' roles have changed, too. In addition to providing the content knowledge our students require to succeed, universities must empower students to take control of their own learning in order to become the century's future leaders. It is in that spirit of sharing what is already working that we invite you to participate in this year's AAU Teaching Showcase, What Works: Empowering Students for the 21st Century.
