Interdisciplinary Project Based Learning

This course was created by a multidisciplinary team of faculty, ATU alumni and students.  The goal of the course is to use innovative teaching approaches that give students skills and experiences that improve their career readiness…This is accomplished by having students work in interdisciplinary teams to solve a problem.  Two key aspects of the course include a mid-semester symposium and the involvement of community members and alumni.  Each year the problem posed to the students will be chosen by the board through a series of focus groups and the faculty member teaching the course will be chosen based on the problem.
