Pedagogical support service

The APUI (Appui à la Pédagogie Universitaire et Innovante) mission is designed to support teacher-researchers in their teaching activities at the University, either individually or as part of a teaching team. In this sense, it is a place of advice, resources, training, reflection and exchange of practices.

It encourages openness and innovation, creates a dynamic of progress, and naturally participates in the sharing of pedagogical experiences. It is a stakeholder in the definition of the school's educational policy.

The APUI mission brings together in one place resources and activities dedicated to the mission of teacher training. These include teacher training activities, evaluation of systems, assistance in setting up new practical methods of testing knowledge, educational innovation (including the design and use of digital resources) and educational documentation. This grouping is a natural coherence factor and facilitates access to these services for teachers.

The objective of the APUI mission is to improve the quality of our training courses but also to promote the harmonious development of the careers of teacher-researchers.

The APUI mission offers support to components in the development of formal and informal learning spaces.
