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.

For staff who have extensive experience in improving their academic practices through evidence-based approaches and reflection, we offer seminars aimed to examine assessment practices, module design, or topics of their own choosing. These seminars are ideal for module leaders or convenors, department chairs, or senior lecturers, readers and professors who wish to explore issues in learning and teaching through in-depth, engaged professional conversations.

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.

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 included Dr Peter Felten and Professor Tansy Jessop, and we look forward to welcoming Dr Lucy Mercer Mapstone in November.
