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.
