1st Workshop on Technology for Teaching at Scale

At the National University of Singapore's School of Computing

New! The Workshop on Educational and Social Science Technology (WESST 2017) is the successor workshop to this workshop, to be held in July 2017.

With the advent of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), lecture-styled instruction is now more widely available to the masses. Improving from this impactful starting step can take many forms. This workshop will bring together respected educator/technologists to describe their research and issues with deploying computer-assisted technology to higher valued learning activities at scale.

We encourage fellow researchers, educators, innovators, and policymakers from all over SG to attend this event to learn and network with the School's technologists and researchers.

Proceedings of the session may be recorded and made publicly available.

Venue: Executive Classroom (EC) [ Map | Floor Plan ]
