Pedagogical Principles

In future, people in working life will need more and more teamworking and interaction skills. These skills will develop through the studies at Metropolia. At Metropolia we support an enriching and constructive student-oriented culture in diverse learning environments.

With the pedagogical principles, we clarify the key concepts that are part of the pedagogical activities and at the same time unify our instructions and concretize our activities in line with the goals.
