Flexible learning pathways (FLP) are a student-centred learning model that allows everyone to choose their individual learning process, regardless of their previous educational background. At each stage of learning, different choices are offered to the learner according to his/her needs, interests, background, knowledge etc.

An essential element of the concept of flexible learning pathways is the ability to easily change the direction of learning during the process, according to the needs, skills or competencies required by each individual. Learning takes place in small parts, tailored for the construction of the flexible learning pathway.

Kaunas University of Technology (KTU) has prepared the Concept of Flexible Learning PathwaysThe publication presents an innovative learning model that is a significant outcome of the pilot phase of the ECIU University.
