A key element of the learner-centred approached embraced by Royal Roads University is the learning environment. RRU offers two innovative learning models to fit learners’ lifestyles:
Both models make extensive use of team-based learning. This provides insights into leadership and organizational dynamics and creates a challenging and supportive learning community that fosters achievement.
Other factors also contribute to RRU's high quality learning environment. For example, all academic divisions are guided by external programme boards and programme development boards, curriculum is competency (outcomes) based and teaching excellence is supported by faculty development opportunities sponsored by the Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies such as Instructional Skills Workshops, monthly "Lunch and Learn" sessions, and other initiatives developed exclusively by and for Royal Roads University.
