About the vision on teaching and learning
The Learning@LeidenUniversity vision on teaching and learning is about what we want our future graduates to be and what that means for our curricula and our learning environment. It offers a long-term framework for the further development of our education and marks the start of a process of innovation.
The core of our vision on teaching and learning
We want our graduates to become academic professionals and engaged citizens who are able to take up positions both in and outside academia and contribute to solutions for the challenges facing our society.
That is Leiden University’s teaching ideal
It calls for teaching that is strongly research driven, that promotes active learning, stimulates the development of academic and professional skills and offers flexibility for individual learning paths. In addition, Leiden University’s ideal teaching and learning environment is characterised by international and intercultural diversity and openness to society. Our teaching is continuously inspired and fed by both academic and societal challenges and problems.
