Page 5 - Learning & Teaching Model
P. 5

During 2011 and 2012, Royal Roads University undertook
a rebranding exercise. As part of the process, interviews were carried out with students, alumni, faculty, and staff to discover the “essence” of Royal Roads University. At its heart, Royal Roads is about the personal and professional transformation
of our students; the branding exercise reaf rmed this, resulting in the tag-line “Life.Changing”. But how do we accomplish this?
I asked Dr. Doug Hamilton, our chair of faculty development
and Dr. Pedro Márquez, our dean of the Faculty of Management to investigate the elements of our learning model that contribute to transformative learning. They were joined by Dr. Niels Agger-Gupta from the School of Leadership Studies in the  nal drafting of the model after extensive consultation. I encourage all who learn and teach at Royal Roads University to read this model. The individual elements may not be new, but when combined there is no doubt that they result in a powerful learning experience.
