Vision of teaching and learning at the Academy.
LChrA updated its vision of teaching and learning in 2010. This new vision does not mean a breaking with the past, instead it builds on the Academie’s education approach “Guided independent learning” and resumes its fundamental elements in an updated framework (among others a more active approach of the teacher’s responsibility before every student).
The Academie’s vision of teaching and learning emphasizes the dose link between research and education: study programs are research based, thus enabling students to acquire academic competences, including thorough knowledge and skills in the discipline, coupled with a broader interdisciplinary perspective, and a critical and research-oriented attitude. Moreover, students integrate these academic competences within a broad ethical, cultural and social formation. Through this they learn to make well-founded choices and to act professionally, constructively and critically in their chosen field. This enables them to assume their Christian and social responsibility as committed citizens.
In Academie’s vision of teaching and learning the active student is in the end responsible for his/her own learning process. It is the responsibility of the staff to provide optimal support for the student.
