Action learning is central to Gaia University methodology with an
approach that emphasizes a balanced flow of action and theory ? learning
by doing merged with learning by thinking.
Gaia University offers a unique and flexible model based on
self-directed, project-based pathways. With a minimum of required
courses, students devote the major part of their energy towards the
design, implementation and documentation of real-world projects, with a
support web of advisers and mentors who assist in the practical
development of projects and encourage students to develop the capacity
to think critically about their work and inner processes.
