Turning risk into opportunity in an era of change

How does NUS provide avenues for adult learners to upskill and remain relevant at the workplace in an era of industry disruption? What key drivers of change and emerging disruptive shifts does it consider in delivering a world-class education in NUS and beyond?

In line with its mission to empower learners to adapt to the changing needs of various industries, as well as to support Singapore’s Continuing Education and Training (CET) initiative, the NUS School of Continuing and Lifelong Education (SCALE) has curated and launched an innovative, tech-enhanced suite of deep-skilling and broad-skilling programmes that learners from all walks of life can look forward to.

Designed to be accessible and with flexible pathways to facilitate bite-sized learning and upskilling at one’s own pace, the courses develop skillsets pertinent to the 21st century, including computational thinking, design mindsets, and social intelligence.

Listen in as NUS Vice Provost (Masters’ Programmes and Lifelong Education) and Dean of SCALE Professor Susanna Leong shares about the plethora of postgraduate and lifelong learning initiatives offered by NUS. The podcast is hosted by Dr Dujeepa Samarasekera, Director of the NUS Centre for Development of Teaching and Learning (CDTL).

This is the sixth instalment of CDTL’s Teaching Connections Podcasts – a series launched in conjunction with the anniversary of Teaching Connections, CDTL’s e-platform for the NUS community to advance discussions about teaching and share effective pedagogical practices and innovative ideas.
