Didicatical model
MLU’s didactical model is derived from Confucius’ famous philosophy: “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.”
We believe that students learn most from practical experience. MLU believes that knowledge is transferred best when students do not just hear and read, but instead interact with lecturers and other students in a real-life or simulated real-life environment.
