Event Will Start In

About This Event

The Critical Edge Alliance aims to become a global collaborative framework for universities that focus upon student-centered learning, critical thinking, interdisciplinary teaching and research, and social engagement. We want to encourage students, scholars, administrators and staff to share experiences of learning and teaching, embark on joint projects, and exchange reflections and ideas about the particular challenges and promises of progressive higher education. The conference will gather universities that aim to continue develop and renew these traditions of critical higher education. It will be based upon collaboration among institutions that consider themselves as alternatives to conventional higher education and are dedicated to progressive and innovative forms of teaching and research. This workshop will focus on the main issues related to innovation in higher education and strategies for innovative learning. Consequently, the organizers seek submissions of original work and experiences that are relevant to the below themes:
