Critical Thinking Communication Collaboration Creativity Critical thinking contributes to career success, but also to success in higher education.

Learning critical thinking leads students to develop other skills, such as a higher level of concentration, deeper analytical abilities, and improved thought processing.
Critical Thinking Communication Collaboration Creativity Expressing thoughts clearly, crisply articulating opinions, communicating coherent instructions, motivating others through powerful speech: in the 21st century, these skills have been transformed and are even more important today.

Linguistically and culturally, effective listening and empathy, across diverse teams, are essential skills for every learner.
Critical Thinking Communication Collaboration Creativity Generally, collaboration has been accepted as a skill that’s essential to achieve meaningful and effective results. But our collaborative global culture has demonstrated how people working together can produce extremely inclusive and valuable resources.

Not only does a collaborative effort create more holistic results than individual efforts, it also creates knowledge for a greater number of people.
Critical Thinking Communication Collaboration Creativity Creativity and innovation are key drivers in the global economy.

In today’s world of global competition and task automation, innovative capacity and a creative spirit are fast becoming requirements for personal and professional success.

Makerspaces at ANI

Makerspaces are collaborative workshops where our students will gain practical hands-on experience across our specialist areas. They also provide hands-on, creative ways to encourage students to design, experiment, build and invent as they deeply engage in science, engineering and tinkering. A Makerspace is not solely a science lab, woodshop, computer lab or art room, but it may contain elements found in all of these familiar spaces. These flexible environments will give ANI students the opportunity to experience all our specialist areas, individually or collaboratively – and is an ideal platform for projects that work across subject area.

The specialist team and the wider ANI teaching staff, are really excited to see what opportunities these spaces will bring in 2020.

Our vision: to have internationally minded, inquiring, knowledgeable and confident lifelong learners.
