CEA Innovation Catalogue

We are launching the CEA IInnovation CCatalogue! Over the years of conferences and exchanges, we have encountered many good teachings and learning practices from the CEA universities. Through the catalogue, we attempt to collect and showcase educational and pedagogical innovations that have happened, or are going on in our respective universities. This aims to provide useful tools and models for teaching and learning for the CEA university community and beyond. We invite you to visit the Innovation Catalogue page, and see the initial case collection. The catalogue will be growing in the following weeks. We also encourage you to submit courses and programs that you think exemplifies alternative higher education approaches.
