FEU practices, advances, and advocates for a learning culture that is student-centered. FEU affirms the ability of students to produce valuable reactions to, reflections and questions on, and understandings and appreciations of topics and issues in the classroom. As such, the FEU classroom is set-up in a manner that will best solicit student input and the FEU teacher’s responsibility is to ensure that the students participate in the generation of ideas rather than be passive recipients of them. The FEU learning environment is one in which students are seen as co-authors of ideas and the FEU teachers are expected to listen to, encourage, and mentor students and to facilitate in the creation of knowledge and ideas.
FEU’s student-centered classroom highly respects not only intellectual differences but also gender identification, sexual orientation, age, creed, socio-economic status, physical and mental condition, ethnic origin, political or other affiliations.
