Learning, Teaching & Research Model (LTRM)

Royal Roads University aims to provide learning, teaching and research that help people transform careers and lives by solving problems and creating opportunities in the world. As set out in our original Learning and Teaching Model (LTM) in 2013, we focus on producing citizens of the world who are passionate, determined and confident lifelong learners, integrated into a broad network of like-minded learners, and who can confidently manage and resolve complex, real-life problems. 

This updated Learning Teaching and Research Model (LTRM) offers a snapshot of the values, worldviews, attributes and practices that reflect and shape the unique learning environment, culture, practice and service at Royal Roads. It aspires to inspire ongoing engagement, creativity, dialogue and debate among our wider community. We seek to continue the conversation about what we do, why we do it and how it contributes to living our shared values.

The LTRM presents three core categories of values: applied and authentic, caring and community-based, and transformational. The acronym “ACT” expresses what our Royal Roads community perceives as unique and forwardthinking in our learning, teaching, research and services. Learn more
