How Teaching Takes Place

Taking on a formal course of academic study can be daunting – particularly if you have not done so for several years. At LKH our ways of teaching and learning are designed to be as supportive as possible, and you will discover that the following features are central to the way we do things:

  • Our class sizes are small. The maximum number is around 20, though normally we learn in groups of between 5 and 15. That means we get to know one another well, can help each other, and ensure everyone has the individual support they need.
  • Our teaching is in the style of interactive seminars. It is very rare to get a formal lecture! Though the person teaching will certainly offer input on a subject, there is plenty of discussion, sharing together, and learning from each other.
  • We provide reading and resources on Moodle, our virtual learning site. This means that you can always access the basic materials you need online, and are able to continue reading, reflecting and writing outside of the formal teaching sessions.
  • Our methods of assessment involve coursework and assignments (e.g. essays, portfolios, case studies, preparation of resources for ministry and mission, class presentations). So there are no exams to take! This is not an easy option, but it does mean that you are able to receive help and guidance before submitting your formally assessed assignments.
