Unlike the conventional teacher-oriented style of teaching, Temasek Academy encourages students to learn beyond mere academics. With the new "Teach Less, Learn More" method as supported by the Ministry of Education, students are expected to initiate research projects, ask tutors for clarification if there is any doubt, and be a self-disciplined learner, instead of having tutors "spoonfeed" students.
The Academy recommends the use of Tablet PCs as an aid to learning. Since the College is already covered with wireless access to the Internet, students can conduct research and view the materials that tutors have uploaded on the e-learning portal (known as the MaTrix) during classes.

“Give me the splendid silent sun
with all his beams full-dazzling,
Give me juicy autumnal fruit ripe and red from the orchard,
Give me a field where the unmowd grass grows,
Give me an arbor, give me the trellisd grape,
Give me fresh corn and wheat, give me serene-moving animals teaching content,”
—Walt Whitman (18191892)
