Day 1 Concurrent session
Smart classrooms & Experiential learning

SUTD would like to invite all participants to come and join us in an SUTD learning experience. We intend to present some of the projects that our faculty has been working on and also to engage participants in a mock lesson to demonstrate the functionality of some of the technologies we have been utilising in our classrooms.

The session will be divided into two sections (see 1A & 1B below). The first section will involve a short presentation by SUTD faculty on the different projects they are engaged in and the results of their research. The second section will then require participants to become learners in an SUTD classroom and to experience learning via these technologies. The projects that will be presented cover a wide range of learning situations, such as the delivery of lessons, assisted learning for self-study, and also tools for after-class reflective learning.

Concurrent session 1A
Presentation of learning projects

Time: 14.00 - 14.30

concurent session 1B
Participants as learners

Time: 14.30 - 16.30
Date: 16 Nov 2015

Participants will be exposed to different teaching approaches in a variety of different learning situations. They will be introduced to new and innovative ways of preparing for, delivering, and reflecting on classroom learning. They will also be brought up to date with the perceived pros and cons of the various different practices being trialed at SUTD. By actively participating in a hands-on session, participants will become more familiar with using new technologies in the classroom and, hopefully, reduce any their fears and concerns about introducing such practices. The presenters will act as facilitators in the second session. Participants will try out the technologies and if time permits, try it out on each other.
