Strategy & policy

Teaching, Learning and Assessment Strategy

In 2013, the Faculty undertook a strategy process to identify aims and priority initiatives in teaching, learning and assessment in the years to come. The current strategy focuses its aims and initiatives around 4 key areas:

  • Teaching excellence
  • Engagement of learners
  • Cultivating the FSTM difference
  • Efficient teaching & learning management



Policy on Quality Assurance and Enhancement for Teaching and Learning

The following guiding principles are the values that underscore FSTM initiatives in quality assurance and enhancement of teaching and learning.

  • Learner-centred


The FSTM seeks to create a learner-centred environment and promote quality enhancement revolving around the needs of committed and responsible learners.

  • Consistency and transparency


The FSTM seeks to ensure consistent communication and implementation of procedures (course descriptions, examination requirements, etc.), fair and consistent treatment of all students, and a common understanding of high quality teaching.

  • Accountability and stakeholder engagement


The FSTM defines its stakeholders as students, teachers, Luxembourgish society, and potential employers. The FSTM is committed to serving these stakeholders, and, in so doing, seeks to actively partner with them with regard to quality in teaching and learning.

  • Transformation


The FSTM seeks to empower students to become responsible members of society and critical thinkers by encouraging a holistic approach to problem solving; carefully considering and constructing programme objectives, course learning outcomes, and teaching activities to foster critical and scientific analysis; and engaging with students in and outside the classroom. The FSTM also seeks to empower its staff to further develop as teachers by offering and encouraging, amongst others, participation in continuing professional development (CPD), creating opportunities to discuss teaching practice.
