The College Learning Experience
Learning at King’s is an active, dynamic experience which flourishes because of good relationships and open discussions between teachers and students and between the students themselves.
The teaching at the College is therefore aimed to develop confidence, autonomy, and positive motivation among the students. This is not just to help them pass exams, but to help prepare them for a world where they will be expected to come to judgments and make (and defend) decisions.
The role of the teacher is, therefore, to stimulate and support learning, not necessarily to stand and deliver information (though there is always a time for that). Therefore, the main methodology will be discursive with teachers guiding small classes through learning discussions (in English). Most classrooms are set out with this in mind and every student will contribute to every lesson.
