Deliver on our commitment to provide a vibrant and sustainable learning and teaching community. Be inspired to continually improve the learning experience of our students. Why have an LTA Strategy?
All of us do not have equal talent, but all of us should have an equal opportunity to develop our talent. -- John F. Kennedy Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work. -- Aristotle Instruction begins when you, the teacher, learn from the learner; put yourself in his place so that you may understand… what he learns and the way he understands it. -- Soren Kierkegaard No matter how good teaching may be, each student must take the responsibility for his own education. John Carolus S.J.
