At SAIU, we place students at the center of their own learning while focusing on collaboration throughout the learning process. Students have an opportunity to actively partake in the ‘why, what, and how’ learning experiences take shape.
Why is about relevance. Learners get to understand the value of the subject, vocabulary, and skills before they are willing to invest effort. The answers "It's required curriculum," "You need it for the test," or "Because I say it's important" are intended to save time, but they only result in lecturers giving lip service to the rest of instruction. Showing relevance from students' perspective is similar to teachers experiencing professional development that is job-embedded.
What is learned involves students choosing the focus of content. In fact students’ interests drive the content that teaches skills and concepts.
‘How’ learning is demonstrated in the different ways that students processes understanding. At SAIU, we offer a variety of product options based on what we know about our students.
