Learning and Teaching - Learning and Teaching
The University of the South Pacific’s commitment to Learning and Teaching stems from its mission to maintain, advance and disseminate knowledge by teaching, consultancy and research, and to provide appropriate levels of education and training responsive to the well-being and needs of the communities in the Pacific region. Quality Learning and Teaching is central to the University’s commitment to ensuring that academic programmes and learning environments meet or exceed international standards. This is a huge challenge because of the wide distribution of students studying courses that are delivered through a variety of different modes, from face-to-face teaching to online to print-based and carried out at various campuses supported by a varying degree of national infrastructure.
The University’s Learning and Teaching strategic goals for the period 2006 – 2010 are to:
As the University is a regional university co-owned by 12 member states with different cultural, political and economic backgrounds, the University will continue to promote through its Learning and Teaching programmes, an environment of respect and tolerance for these differences and foster a pan-Pacific consciousness to unify members of the university region.
