This report defines student-centred learning and teaching as an overarching approach to designing higher education processes, which is founded on the concept of student agency. Student-centred learning and teaching primarily concerns the capability of students to participate in, influence and take responsibility for their learning pathways and environments, in order to have a transformative learning experience and thus achieve the expected learning outcomes. Additionally, we envsion student-centred learning and teaching as an approach that goes beyond classroom practice to build inclusive and supportive learning and teaching environments within higher education institutions and their sub-institutions, units, as well as in broader higher education systems at regional, national and supranational levels.
