Teaching & Learning in Kishoge Community College will be an interactive and collaborative experience for students where our role as teachers will often be teacher as facilitator. We will be creative, innovative and open to new ideas in our approach to methodology. We will adopt a holistic approach to our teaching, seeing ourselves first and foremost as teachers of students (as opposed to teachers of subjects). We will share responsibility for the development of literacy and numeracy of our students and for our students’ social, personal and ethical development. We will focus on the needs of each individual student: every student in KCC must be enabled to experience success. Our approach to teaching will be open and collaborative: our doors will be open and we will develop a strong culture of sharing ideas and resources. Assessment both for and of learning, will be an integral part of our teaching practice.
