VU’s approach to learning and teaching is student-centred. Our goal is to empower students to be life-long learners with the skills and knowledge to work in a complex world. The learning and teaching approaches at VU underpin the distinctiveness of the student experience. These approaches are outlined in the VU Agenda and Blueprint for Curriculum Reform. 

VU encourages its teaching staff to engage with research about how students learn and the effective use of digital tools in relation to:

  • discipline knowledge
  • connected learning
  • professional competency.

These tools provide the grounding for an exceptional student experience and a career-ready VU graduate.
