EDUCATION AND TRAINING POLICY
Yaşar University Education and Training Policy is based on an integrated (vertical and horizontal) education philosophy which adopts a student-centred education approach, development and application of innovative learning and teaching techniques, and development of students’ ability to cope with complexity, diversity and change.
In this context, the curriculum structure of our University adopts an integrative education philosophy, which is based on a student-centred education approach and allows students to specialize in line with their preferences. Seminars, learning communities, interdisciplinary studies, and graduation projects are encouraged. In undergraduate education, research-based approaches and methods that enable students to recognize research processes and problems and promote learning by research are part of the curriculum. Training is organized for academic staff to use innovative education methods, and their research is supported with funds and publications promoted. Education and training processes are managed in accordance with the “Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA)” cycle. Program qualifications at Yaşar University are determined in accordance with TYYÇ.
The Open and Distance Learning Application and Research Center, a part of the Distance Education System, implements the processes of developing Open and Distance Learning environments by designing, presenting, evaluating and enriching learning opportunities with innovative education technologies. The information produced in this context is given to the students through lifelong learning applications, providing the freedom to choose in learning. The learners are provided with training on different educational technology applications with the “Distance” approach on what, how and from where they will learn.
