Programmes

King's Academy situates our programmes, series, and workshops within a research-enhanced framework for the continual enhancement of curriculum design and assessment, learning environments and academic support. At the core of our scholarly framework resides our mission to provide professional development experiences that are collaborative, student-centred and respectful to the range of staff expertise within King's.

This programme is for those new to King’s and is a comprehensive professional development experience in inclusive, student-centred teaching, scholarly enquiry of academic practice, and supporting students through personal tutoring, mentorship and supervision.

Our GTA Development programme is designed to help graduate teaching assistants become reflective and skilled instructors who are knowledgeable in pedagogical best practices for specific instructional contexts. Our goal is to give GTAs increased confidence and preparation for teaching roles and responsibilities within King's.

King's Academy supports instructors who wish to seek national recognition through the Higher Education Academy (HEA). King's academic and professional services staff who teach, supervise, assess or support students’ learning, in any role, can gain recognition for their teaching.

King's Academy, in collaboration with King's Online, Centre for Technology Enhanced Learning and Libraries & Collections, has developed a comprehensive programme of synchronous and asynchronous materials to support teaching and learning in an increasingly digital environment. The Educators Hub has links to Flexible Teaching and Learning (as the principle workshop resource) amongst other key strands at King's.

Throughout the academic year, King's Academy offers a range of workshops aimed to improve knowledge of research-enhanced pedagogic practices.

Periodically, King's Academy hosts and sponsors international and national scholars on learning, teaching, and assessment. Our speakers have previously included Dr Peter Felten and Professor Tansy Jessop, Dr Lucy Mercer Mapstone and Dr Emma Medland.
