Getting to know your NP Teaching Award AY 2018/2019 Recipients!

mobile devices
Who are our NPTA recipients? What motivates them to teach and what are some of the strategies they have used in class to engage students? To answer these questions, LT did a short interview with our NPTAs Serene Lau (School of Humanities and Social Sciences), Kenneth Sim (School of Design & Environment) and Billy Tey (School of Engineering) to find out more about their journey as an educator.

E-Pract : Mobile E-assessment for Clinical Skills 

mobile devices
Many educators have used some form of technology in teaching & learning. However, not as many would have leveraged on technology to improve the process for assessment. This paper by Ms Germaine Chua of the School of Health Sciences (HS) shares how her team has leveraged on technology to design an assessment process that allows lecturers to provide more accurate and timely evaluation of and feedback for students learning. Click on the link below to see how this in-house developed process has enhanced the assessment experience for students.

Computer-Based Simulation for Teaching Water Reclamation and Fire Safety Management 

mobile devices
Technology has allowed educators to create learning opportunities that once would have seemed impossible. Lecturers in the School of Design & Environment (DE) worked on the development of a Computer Based Simulation courseware that shows the “insides” of a building where they were able to provide students with unprecedented “access” to areas that they would otherwise not have the chance to see at this stage in their learning. Click on the link to find out more about how Dr Katayon Sead & Mr Tan Chin Chong of DE have used this in-house developed simulation courseware to create an alternative learning experiences for our students.

Teaching 6-axis Industrial Robot Programming Via Simulation and Hands-on Laboratory

mobile devices
The Diploma in Automation and Mechatronics System course in the School of Engineering (SoE) Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) was developed to prepare students to be designers and engineers of automation systems. One of the fundamental skills required is to be able to operate and programme an industrial robot. However, for many students this is very difficult as they have no prior encounters with these equipment and are unable to make sense of the knowledge acquired through traditional didactic teaching . There were also limited opportunities for students to use the actual robots for learning or practice. Hence, the teaching team came together to re-design the curriculum to create a new “space” for practice and learning through technology. Click on the link to read more about how Mr Edwin Ho and his team put together this new learning experience for their students.
