About the Event :
For a better understanding of various pedagogical approaches to integrating technologies in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET)* to enhance students' learning in a digital society, the Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT) has invited e-Learning specialists from Educational Design and Technology Division, Institute of Technical Education (ITE), Singapore, to provide a seminar to share innovative practices of using ICT in curriculum delivery in the Asia-Pacific region (Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Philippines, Republic of Korea and Singapore). A workshop will also be provided to introduce the concepts of participatory and collaborative learning together with hands-on practice on how to adopt appropriate ICT tools and applications to engage students' learning.
* Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is a widely used term in the vocational training and education sector in Singapore.

Dr Theresa Thang has been engaged in e-learning endeavours for the past 16 years. Her earlier career as an educator in diverse educational contexts has helped to shape her conviction in the way she drives organisation-wide ICT strategies to develop the e-education culture in the Institute of Technical Education. This is also evidenced in her research interest, which is in the social behaviour of students when they collaborate in an ICT-enabled environment. Theresa has also just completed a research project with UNESCO, entitled “Beyond Access: ICT-enhanced Innovative Pedagogy in TVET”, where data were collected from six countries in the Asia-Pacific region. She hopes to share the findings of this research with policy makers so that ICT implementation will have real benefits and impacts on the ground.
