Educational support service

The APUI (Appui à la Pédagogie Universitaire et Innovante) mission is designed to support lecturers in their teaching activities at the University, either individually or as part of a teaching team. It provides advice, resources, training, discussion and exchanges of practice.

It encourages openness and innovation, creates a dynamic for progress, and naturally participates in the pooling of teaching experience. It plays an active role in defining the school's educational policy.

The APUI mission brings together resources and activities dedicated to teacher training. These include teacher training, assessment of teaching systems, support for the introduction of new practical methods of testing knowledge, educational innovation (including the design and use of digital resources) and educational documentation. This grouping together creates a natural coherence and facilitates access to these services for teachers.

The aim of the APUI mission is to improve the quality of our training courses and also to encourage the harmonious development of the careers of our teaching and research staff.

The APUI mission offers support to components in designing formal and informal learning spaces
