Strong links with practice and scientific communities
SUPSI teaching staff carry out research and service activities within the institutes and centres of expertise and/or assume important professional roles in practice. In this way, the academic body maintains ongoing relations with other universities, companies, political institutions and organisations at regional, national and international level.
A complex role
SUPSI lecturers do not just pass on their knowledge and experience, but design a series of in- and out-of-class learning activities aimed at the active development of knowledge and skills and accompany students along their educational path.
The pedagogical and didactic continuing development of teaching staff is very close to SUPSI's heart. Most of the teachers, professors and lecturers have a teaching qualification and regularly attend meetings and training events in this area.
The teacher-student relationship
Despite the increase in student numbers, the size of SUPSI and the proposed teaching methods, which involve numerous activities in small groups, a study climate that is attentive to the needs of the individual as well as a close relationship and direct exchange between students and the teaching staff is favoured.
