Learning Sciences and Assessment

Academic Group

  • The interdisciplinary academic group focuses on understanding learning and assessment. The learning focus (both formal and informal) involves designing, implementing, integrating the learning environments for pedagogical innovations, with or without technologies.

    The assessment focus is concerned with the recognition, reporting, rewarding and ramifications of learning and achievement. It envisages and evaluates the process and outcomes of learning in measurable and also in holistic ways for both summative and formative purposes.

    The academic group is committed to quality scholarship, inquiry into the relationship of theory and practice, research in diverse educational contexts that contribute to the existing knowledge base and expertise in Singapore and the global teaching and learning community.
