At King Edward VII Hall (KEVII), sharing and learning form a crucial part of the residents’ experience. While the concept of experiential and holistic learning is not new, the approach in which it is realized amidst today’s globalised landscape, often characterised as complex, disruptive, and uncertain, may be different in various communities and contexts.
At KEVII, there are many opportunities for residents to optimise the living-learning environment to cultivate teamwork and leadership. It is also a place for residents to explore and learn something new in supportive and collaborative environment. Through interaction with residential staff members and peers, as well as participating in out-of-classroom activities, residents develop a deeper appreciation for the connection between the academic and co-curricular spaces.
In capturing learning from the informal spaces in a more structured manner, three key elements underpin the KEVII Hall’s conceptualisation of residential learning. These are as elaborated below.
