Teaching and Learning Philosophy

Our teaching and learning philosophy is based on the following principles developed in the field of organisational psychology.

Students are encouraged to start with their own personal and professional experiences to explore theoretical concepts and try out new ideas and activities. Interactive teaching: Courses are organised around interactions and dialogues, with students sharing and exchanging their questions and insights.

Theories and research findings are not simply presented as given; instead, the creation of knowledge is articulated from different epistemological positions and we encourage students to engage with the social, ethical and political consequences of certain knowledge positions.

We encourage our lecturers to go beyond the usual Power Point approach and to work with different media and forms of learning, such as films, role play, theatre, visualisation, drawing, etc.

Learning is an embodied practice and therefore not limited to a rational model of a passive learner, but it engages all the senses through which learning can take place.
