Harkness training at Wellington College International Bangkok
Wellington College International Bangkok run a comprehensive PD programme both as part of the Induction Week and on an ongoing basis. WCIB recently welcomed Dushy Clarke, Head of Economics at Wellington College to Bangkok. He delivered comprehensive training on the concept of Harkness, what is a Harkness less and why are they so valuable. These lessons promote the idea of significant preparation and pre-reading, individual interpretation of this work and reasoned discussion. Students moderate themselves and they learn tolerance, listening to and understanding the viewpoints of others. The skills learned are skills for life.
