Learning & Teaching


Some thoughts...

"I had a good education but it never went to my head, somehow. It should be a journey ending up with you at a different place. It didn't take with me. My degree was a kind of inoculation. I got just enough education to make me immune from it for the rest of my life". Alan Bennett, celebrated author of The History Boys, actor, dramatist.

"The teacher, as subject expert, has three key roles to play in enabling learning: lending the capacity to participate in meaning, designing well planned excursions into unfamiliar discursive terrain and coaching students in speaking the academic discourse. Each demands the skill and insight of an established and fluent member of the relevant academic community.......The student's goal is to become an effective participant in an unfamiliar knowledge community." Andrew Northedge, educator.


"Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon." E.M. Forster, novelist and essayist.
