AUP Community Blog

Home>News & Events>

The AUP Community Blog is a place for global explorers to share stories and resources with their peers and colleagues. Originally developed as the AUP at Home blog during the French confinement period of Spring semester 2020, the blog allows community members to share contributions on the subjects they find most important, while supporting one another with common resources.

The idea is both to strengthen AUP's ability to implement innovative teaching and learning strategies and to contribute to the University's strong emphasis on community spirit. Don’t hesitate to reach out to with your pitches for articles.
