The process of learning should include reflective participation and action that is dialogical and cooperative. Mutual learning must occur between facilitator and learner, thus enabling learners to believe in themselves. Ultimately, education must be a process of authentic humanization. It is in recognition of this that MLCU has sought to provide a university education that caters to the unique aspects of students in the region.
Learning is a continuous process and it is influenced by what is taught and how teaching and learning is delivered. The university focuses on enhancing learning rather than measuring learning and Continuous Formative Evaluation shifts the focus from testing to learning. It also caters to the different multiple intelligence, learning styles, and personalities of students. Tasks such as field trips, project work, group work, assignments and others reveal the capacity of learners better and give them better opportunities of understanding and improving themselves. Teachers can then plan improvements accordingly based on the formative results.In its 17 years of existence, MLCU has evolved an academic model that has drawn from international and national conventions of the discipline of education and, to these, the University has added its own experience and research. In this manner, not a mosaic or a jigsaw, but a seamless integrative pluralism of learning is being accomplished.
A continuous formative evaluation purpose is to evaluate student learning in order to give continuing feedback that can assist students recognize their strengths and shortcomings and target areas that require improvement. It also assists educators in identifying where learners are underperforming and addressing issues as soon as possible
