Course Introduction

As Singapore continues to move into the Future Economy, and digital disruption as part of the changing landscape, it is inevitable that educators start a conversation on how we can disrupt ourselves before we are disrupted. This forum aims to connect industry partners and educators through a series of masterclasses and thoughtful conversations while providing networking opportunities for better educational partnerships and outcomes.

Course Objective

Through this forum, we hope to foster a learning community that promotes the free exchange of ideas and provide a platform for the sharing of best practices. We believe that the forum will be an ideal platform for both industry and educators to disrupt mindsets, skillsets and behaviours as we evolve learning both at the workplace and in learning institutes through the use of innovative teaching and learning and technology.
