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.
Date and Time:
13 October 2015 (Tuesday)
12:00 to 17:00
The event is over. Look for the next edition of the workshop
in the future.
The workshop is open to the public and free
of charge, but you must register in advance due to limited space
in the workshop venue.
