Lapland UAS’s view on learning
Lapland UAS’s view on learning is founded on the principles of competence, problem and project based learning.
We emphasize professional development through student-centered methods on learning and guiding. Student is an active, responsible subject of his/her own learning. The teacher is a specialist in learning; a guide and enabler of learning.
Learning is comprised of students, teachers and working life. Students develop their decision-making skills and are able to learn through mistakes, too.
Every semester, students create a project together with fellow students in multicultural team. The project combines the topics learnt during the semester. The project may also be an assignment by a customer, R&D project, a company, a governmental body or for your own business idea.
Teamwork and multicultural skills along the project skills are in demand in the many fields of business. In the years to come, you’ll be able further enhance these skills and work in more complex international projects.
The curriculum forms a starting point for compiling an individual study plan (ISP). You will compile an ISP together with a tutor teacher, where progress in studies is planned in detail.
