Pedagogy is an essential part of Haaga-Helia's operations. The pedagogical choises influence especially learning, teaching and guidance. Pedagogy in Haaga-Helia links learning to work, creating and applying new knowledge in a communal and developing way.
Pedagogy in Haaga-Helia is inspirational and always applied with a human touch. It encourages students to develop themselves. It aims to guide students to acquire relevant skills and competences for their future careers as well as for developing their future workplace. In addition, it develops students’ meta competences which help them to utilise their know-how (for example presentation, teamwork and analytical skills). Pedagogy is experimental, action-oriented and communal. Pedagogy is implemented jointly with companies and other organisations in a variety of ways while also integrating research, development and innovation activities into learning. Teachers work together with students on development projects for our partners.
