During this week, we had the opportunity to welcome two international guest speakers, Dr Denis Berthiaume (HES-SO), who gave an interesting lecture about the five megatrends in higher education, and Dr Sam Smidt of University College London (UCL) who introduced us to the Connected Curriculum project at UCL. We also had the chance to showcase our faculty members’ recent projects and enjoy some fun, hands-on activities.
We also celebrated our three winners of the Teacher Awards, who were nominated and voted for by both faculty colleagues and students. Dr Margarita Cruz Barrientos and Dr Nicole Rosenkranz won the “Rising Star Teaching Award” and a delighted Mr Alain Najar won the “Teacher of the Year Award”.
Congratulations to all of them on their awards and success!
