Learning, Teaching, and Research Model
The Learning, Teaching, and Research Model (LTRM) is at the core of the teaching, learning, and research journey at RRU.
The LTRM expresses "how we work at RRU and connects to both what we learn, teach, and research (common threads running through our work, such as leadership, social innovation, and sustainability), and most importantly, why we work at RRU, to help to create LIFE.CHANGING learning experiences in service of positive social change."
The LTRM is distilled into 3 core categories of values or attributes of practice:
Please explore the LTRM through our LTRM Booklet
Understanding RRU's Learning, Teaching, and Research Model is fundamental to taking on a teaching or course development contract.
RRU's Centre for Teaching and Educational Technologies (CTET) provides services to the RRU community in support of curriculum and teaching excellence, including a series of LTRM Resources. These resources reference the previous Learning and Teaching Model (LTM), which provides the foundations for the recently revised LTRM.
CTET also runs occasional micro-sessions that support the LTRM. Please see:
CTET's Storytelling Series includes sections dedicated to understanding the different components that make up our model:
- Learning Communities
- Team-Based Learning
- Outcomes-Based Learning
- Experiential, Authentic Learning Strategies
- Faculty with Professional Experience
- Enhancing Learning Through Technology
