Conference 2018: Strategies For Innovative Learning

Thank you to everybody who participated and made for the inspiring 4th Critical Edge Alliance Conference at Universidad de los Andes. Under the banner of "Strategies for Innovative Learning", we exchanged views and experiences of our own experiences in teaching, research and administration. A special thank you to the Universidad de los Andes organizing team for the great program and making the days pass smoothly. In this newsletter we will focus on some of the many outcomes of the conference. The conference gathered around 60 participants from 10 universities and seven countries. We were also happy to include several participants from Mexico, Chile and other Colombian universities. Proposals were wildly different, from Emotional impact on learning experience after the death of a patient in a simulation scenario at Universidad de los Andes to The RUC cleaners project: an innovative approach to student-led research projects. Students and faculty worked together both on several of the proposals as well as in the following plenary discussions.
