GBSN member school, National University of Singapore (NUS), is being hailed for its early adoption of innovative educational developments.
Offering free online courses, converting facilities to “flipped classroom” and implementing teaching methods that leverage mobile technology are some of ways NUS is adapting to accommodate students’ changing learning habits.
NUS began offering online courses two years ago on platforms such as Coursera as a means to build its global presence while enabling more people to benefit from NUS’s educational offerings. Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have created a buzz on campuses around the world, and triggered a rethinking of higher education, teaching models and the role of technology in education. The collaboration with Coursera will further build an innovative technology-enhanced education culture on the NUS campus
Many other Singapore universities are also adopting innovative approaches that are contributing to the growing diversity of educational offerings in the region.
