EiRP facilitates active exchanges between the NUS academic community and distinguished educators from around the world
Tony Harland, Professor of Higher Education at the University of Otago, New Zealand is this year’s Educator-in-Residence (EiR) Scholar. He will be in residence at CDTL from 14 to 26 September 2018. During his stay he will deliver the EiRP-Ruth Wong Memorial Lecture, which has been scheduled for 20 September 2018, 3.00pm to 4.30pm, on the topic ‘The assessment arms race and its fallout: the case for slow scholarship’. He will also conduct two workshops for NUS colleagues and students. One will be on ‘The assessment of complex knowledge’, while the other will focus on ‘A case study about students who peer review each other’s work’. More details about the lecture and workshops will be announced via email in the weeks ahead.
In addition to offering the lecture and workshops, Tony will further participate in a range of activities on campus. Besides meeting with members of NUS senior management, Tony is happy to meet groups of colleagues and their students who may wish to engage him on specific issues relating to education.
