Colloquium

Colloquium

Description

The AMU Colloquia are embedded academic course milestones which serve as part of the University’s quality management system.  Colloquia occur at the end of every semester in every program.  During the Colloquia, AMU faculty, advisors, guest lecturers, and content subject matter experts assess student semester and program progress to date.  During the Colloquia, students receive verbal and written feedback from faculty and academic staff in both group and one-on-one sessions. Colloquia occur in a series of events over an approximate one-month period so that students may complete assignments and improvements assigned by faculty.

Colloquia occur in five formats: a) the approximate month-long format of online, synchronous, scheduled course meetings, during which students demonstrate learning and share drafts online of their work with faculty, degree-project advisors, and other students; b) one-on-one, asynchronous, online sessions with faculty to discuss specific assistance and feedback; c)  small group online or onsite sessions where students assemble by degree, or degree specialization (Quality, Healthcare, Education); d) end of Colloquia online and pre-scheduled quiz; e) on-site meetings, seminars and social events. The onsite meetings for December, 2016 are scheduled for December 8-11 at the Hilton Boca Raton Suites (Boca Raton, FL).

Colloquia emphasize improvement and elaboration of writing and research connected to the degree project which is the culmination of the AMU programs.  Attendance and submissions are required of all students in order to complete the semester and maintain their student status.  The December Colloquium is especially vital for students who expect to formally graduate in June, 2017.
