Date: 31 May 2018
Time: 1.45pm - 2.45pm
Venue: Ballroom

Synopsis

In many ways, technology has reshaped university education. This talk presents an overview of technology-triggered changes in universities in Singapore. In particular, it focuses on SUSS’s journey with technology in shaping its students’ learning experience and its administration. SUSS aims to harness innovation and technology to improve educational outcomes for its students. Thus far, what SUSS has done allows it to optimise class time, rapidly develop and deploy learning materials, cultivate faculty-teaching teams, use evidence-based pedagogy, enable students to collaborate in a virtual learning space, and employ data-driven decision making. The journey continues… By painting a picture of how learning in the future would look like in the universities, and what current primary and secondary educators can aspire toward, this talk offers suggestions as to how we can develop future-ready students.
