We promote student participation and interaction in class as they have been shown to have a positive effect on learning; this is called ‘active learning’.
In an active class we expect students to ask questions, challenge and interact with lecturers and fellow students, discuss ideas with a partner and explore ideas together, work in groups to develop teamwork and problem-solving skills and actively engage with course materials before, during and after the class.
We are committed to creating an inclusive learning environment in which students feel valued and supported, both as individuals and as part of a wider academic community. We greatly respect our diverse student body, and take active measures to improve the success of specific groups to ensure everyone has the appropriate support and guidance they need through their educational journey.
At LCIBS we also promote experiential learning and provide our students with opportunities to learn through experience outside the classroom, applying theory in practical contexts. We believe students learn best when they get involved in this way, putting themselves at the heart of the learning process.
