Dear Partners and Colleagues,
We are glad to announce that due to the overwhelming response to our first webinar on Re-examining teaching and learning in June 2020, the Global Relations Office (GRO) and Centre for Development of Teaching and Learning (CDTL) of NUS have established a Regional Webinar Series as a platform for knowledge sharing on teaching and learning practices within the Southeast Asian region and beyond. We hope that this platform will allow us to learn from and support each other through our current tough times. (For more information on past and upcoming webinars please visit this page.)
Thus, NUS warmly invite you and your colleagues to a special online seminar on “Sharing good teaching practices: How have we coped in a pandemic?”
As we settle into “a new normal” across the globe, every institution around the world has been faced with and tried to overcome challenges in higher education, some overarching, such as shifting lessons online and creating alternative assessment arrangements, while others were no doubt more unique. After completing at least one semester during the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope to come together as a region to share our lessons learnt and good practices in teaching and learning under such unprecedented circumstances.
This online discussion gathers a panel of experts from leading ASEAN universities in the region to share their experiences with teaching and learning in light of our new global situation.
More details can be found in the poster appended below.
Date: 27 August 2020 (Thursday)
Time: 3:00PM to 4:30PM (GMT +8)
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
Please forward this to colleagues who may be interested. We look forward to welcoming you to our event soon.
