ALIAS provides a forum for exploring active learning approaches to teaching international affairs. These approaches include, but are not limited to: case studies, simulations, games and role-play, service and service learning, study abroad, film, and interactive technology. We also encourage exploration of interdisciplinary active learning approaches and rethinking overarching curricular issues in international studies. ALIAS supports the development and use of active and experiential learning techniques in international affairs, promotes discussion of the practical aspects of teaching and learning, and encourages research on active learning in international affairs.
