AIAU Launches New Series of Online Learning Modules

The AIA launches an online learning series on AIAU called Emerge by AIAU. Developed by the AIA Center for Emerging Professionals, with the goal of helping Associate AIA members gain credits in the most challenging Architectural Experience Program (AXP) practice areas, this series offers comprehensive and evergreen content through convenient online learning modules.

Emerge by AIAU offers online video-based courses to supply Associate AIA members with knowledge that is not always available at architecture firms. Associates can gain experience hours in NCARB’s Architectural Experience Program by completing each course, worth one hour of HSW credit, equal to one hour of experience in AXP. Incorporating short quizzes and activities in the videos and by allowing Associates to gain experience on their own terms, Emerge will help members adjust to new practice models in the profession.

Log-in to AIAU to check out the Ethics in Architecture and Economics in Architecture courses in Emerge, as well as 4 promotional courses selected to accompany them. New courses will be added each month to the Emerge series.
