AUB professor of chemistry Bilal Kaafarani describes how in his 18 years at AUB he has pioneered new means of “transformative education” that allow students to learn by engaging in activities beyond the classroom. He explains the benefits and power of “experiential learning” opportunities by which undergraduate students partner with alumni, professors, successful professionals, and other students, including in open chemistry competitions, that link teaching with students’ real life experiences.
