The EISCAS project organizes two main international events for scholars of CAS to meet and discuss the evolution and future of CAS in an interdisciplinary setting. Scholars and experts are invited to present papers, in various disciplines. There will be various roundtables to share and discuss the insights from the CAS scholarly community on a various range of topics. During these events the EISCAS project will present its project outcomes such as the handbook, other materials, recommendations for curriculum design as well as guidelines for teachers of CAS. Please check out the following upcoming events:

  • Seminar on teaching CAS in Bishkek – Spring 2020
