International Conference on Teaching & Learning in Higher Education (TLHE 2006)
6 - 8 December 2006
The fourth conference in this series will be held at the National University of Singapore on December 6-8, 2006. The theme of this conference is Quality in Higher Education.

 

bullet International Conference on Teaching & Learning in Higher Education (TLHE 2004)
1 - 3 December 2004
The third conference in this series was held at the National University of Singapore on December 1-3, 2004. The theme of this conference is Individual and Institutional Self-Assessment in Higher Education. From the point of view of a given course taught by a faculty member, self assessment involves reflection on the goals, classroom activities, learning materials, assessment tasks, student feedback and other sources of evidence to make an estimate of what the students must have learnt, how well they learnt it, and how optimal the pedagogical choices were. From an institutional point of view, self-assessment involves the scrutiny of the educational goals, resources, policies and practice to evaluate the value and relevance of the goals, and to make an estimate of the success of the institution - at the levels of the university, school, department, and individual faculty member - in accomplishing the goals, quite often within the context of quality assurance and external accreditation.

 

bullet FASS-CDTL Symposium 2004
4 - 5 November 2004
This symposium, to be spread out over one-and-a half days, presents the day-to-day teaching experiences of a cross-section of the faculty in FASS. The theme of the symposium is on innovative approaches to university teaching and learning, including (but not limited to) large and small class teaching, discussion groups, the use of technology, and the teaching of GEMS.  Innovative teaching and learning approaches which are multi-/trans-/inter- disciplinary are particularly welcome.  We plan to publish, but not assert copyright on, the collection of papers for wider dissemination.

 

bullet FASS-CDTL Symposium 2003
7 - 8 November 2003
This first-ever joint teaching symposium by both the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) and the Centre for the Development of Teaching and Learning (CDTL) is to share and showcase various perspectives on teaching in NUS and, in particular, the FASS. Teaching in the humanities and social sciences takes dedicated scholars to make it work, and this symposium, to be spread out over two half-days, presents the day-to-day teaching experiences of a cross-section of the faculty in FASS. The theme of the symposium is on grounded experiences, on what directly works, and what might work even better. The exciting range of papers to be presented at the symposium gives colleagues a timely opportunity to discuss and reflect further on the teaching and learning experience.

 

bullet Emerging Trends in ICT in Engineering and Computing Education
2 August 2003
The programme was built around the theme of 'Emerging trends in ICT in Engineering and Computing education'. The theme of the symposium was "Exploring where teaching, learning and technology meet. Examples of how information and communication technology (ICT) is being applied to support a contemporary focus on student centred learning in engineering and computing education."

 

bullet Teaching & Learning in Higher Education (TLHE) Symposium 2002 (TLHE 2002)
4 - 6 September 2002
Following the success of the First Symposium on Teaching and Learning in Higher Education held in July 2000 at the National University of Singapore, this Second Symposium will continue to bring together teachers to promote and exchange ideas, solutions, and experiences across a broad range of topics related to teaching and learning in higher education today. The emphasis is on the changes in learning processes and learning outcomes as a result of the shift from the instruction paradigm to the learning paradigm. Our ultimate goal is the increased awareness of pedagogical issues that result in enhanced teaching and learning.


bullet Problem-Based Learning Symposium 2001
29 August 2001
The goal of this symposium is to introduce some concepts of PBL, and to demonstrate how these are typically worked out in current implementations of PBL at NUS. At present these are largely in the applied disciplines that clearly lend themselves to the PBL approach. A further and equally important goal is to explore how PBL might be extended to other disciplines in a variety of contexts and constraints.

bullet e-Education Conference 2001
9 January 2001
This one-day conference, open to educators and IT professionals, aims to provide a unique and timely forum for information sharing, collaborative planning, and discussion of how institutions might best work together to maximise their efforts in e-Education.

 



1st ASEAN Conference on Problem-Based Learning in Health Sciences 2000
20-22 November 2000
This Conference will discuss the practice of PBL during the workshops and plenary lectures by experienced PBL practitioners. Several Deans of medical schools in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Asia, including Singapore, will be discussing how PBL have been implemented at their institutions.

bullet Teaching & Learning in Higher Education (TLHE) Symposium 2000 (TLHE 2000)
6 - 7 July 2000
The 1st Symposium on Teaching and Learning in Higher E ducation (TLHE Symposium) is organised by the Centre for Development of Teaching and Learning (CDTL), National University of Singapore (NUS). This two-day symposium, was held on 6 th and 7 th July 2000 in NUS, provided a forum for teachers to interact with one another and exchange ideas. Pedagogical philosophy and pedagogical theory in recent years have become specialised disciplines. This symposium will approach them from the standpoint of practising educators who reflect on their practice. We encourage teachers to forge a philosophy and theory on the basis of their own experience of teaching and learning, with the hope that this activity will yield more productive curricula and teaching strategies. Our ultimate goal is the increased awareness of pedagogical issues that result in enhanced teaching and learning.
