Plan of Work 2010: Towards True Student-Centered Learning
European Students' Union (NJ1)
The European Students' Union's (ESU's) vision regarding the Student Centered Learning concept stems from the fundamental belief that the learning process should have at its core learning objectives as they are prioritized by each individual students, also that each (potential) student should be empowered to define those objectives and progress towards them in a unique manner. If the academic staff are to empower the students to achieve their full potential, something needs to change. If they look at how they progress in life as students, they'll probably notice that a number of other areas are instrumental to achieve the learning outcomes one was aiming at. Firstly, it should be about the learning outcomes, not about the teaching objectives. Secondly, they should look beyond teaching methods and underline the importance of student financial and logistical support, quality of studies, freedom for mobility and the list could surely go on. This is why the ESU staff have decided to make this Plan of Work about how they can reach a true student centered educational systems, while at the same time moving in full throttle towards more support for the ESU members and a long term vision for what ESU should bring to its members, in its multifaceted role. The items of this plan of work are developed in the following way, under each of the three main chapters: (1) Political priorities; (2) Activities; (3) Dossier; and (4) Finances. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
