Book Title: Strong Schools
Book Description: This open-access textbook is a collaborative writing project with 22 students at the Asian University for Women (AUW).
The Asian University for Women Master of Arts in Education program is unique in the sense that it has been launched with aspirations to empower women in education, particularly the brightest young female reformists/educational entrepreneurs dedicated to creating an impact through educational development in society. The majority of the students who took part in this class are Afghan evacuees and/or belong to minority communities seeking to bring a change.
The “Strong Schools” course is a project-based learning class that integrates students’ future paths as educators, policymakers, innovators, and school founders. Over the winter term of 2022, students have been working collaboratively to write a book about ‘Strong Schools’ that covers multiple aspects of initiating or teaching in a secondary school. Each of the chapters reflects students’ critical ideas, observation, creative thinking and lessons from distinguished guest speakers from around the globe, with the sessions held simultaneously in the class. The chapters are also a fruitful outcome of students’ interactive discussion and mind-mapping activities throughout the sessions. In addition, the book remarks a crucial part of the modern educational process, the use of diverse technology and tools in education and learning.
