APRU Provosts' Forum 2016 Report

Teaching & Innovation


The 3rd Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) Provosts Forum centered on innovations in teaching and learning. To highlight the theme of innovation, program sessions used a “flipped classroom” approach rather than lecture-style presentations. Session facilitators shared content in advance, briefly introduced research and case studies, then asked questions that promoted lively discussion.


The APRU Provosts Forum was held on the University of Washington campus in Seattle, Washington, with participants in attendance from 21 universities around the Pacific Rim. The Forum was held in one of the UW’s Active Learning Classrooms, which is a lively and dynamic environment that serves as a center for undergraduate instruction, learning and technology.
