Teaching & Learning

ISTM creates a teaching and learning paradigm for Undergraduate 2+2 Programs. We cultivate an international and immersive environment where teachers explore innovation in teaching and students take initiative in learning.
Innovation in Teaching & Learning
ISTM supports students in effective and active learning. It is our goal that students have fun in learning. To reach this goal, we encourage our teachers to explore innovative teaching approaches and make an extra effort to develop interesting and interactive curriculums that will allow students to “learn by doing” and “learn to learn”. We believe that students’ performance should be continuously evaluated based on their effort and progress in each class. Students are asked regularly to reflect on their learning as an individual and as a group by giving feedbacks to themselves, to their teammates and to the teachers. Students, as active participants and contributors, learn to take responsibility for the effectiveness of their learning. At ISTM, we create an exciting teaching and learning platform, a vibrant and stimulating environment for teachers and students, and a paradigm for higher education.
Teacher Workshops are held regularly at ISTM in order to strengthen communications among our faculty members. We provide interactive, experiential seminars which focus on innovations in teaching. In addition, teachers discuss relevant topics including programs, teaching objectives and evaluation methods. Faculty members are able to get a better understanding of the missions and teaching standards of ISTM, building a foundation for further teaching collaborations.
