  4. 4. NUS Institute for the Application of Learning Science and Educational Technology (ALSET) We help learners learn.
  5. 5. ALSET: Three Strands We help learners learn. 28 Sep 2017 - 5th EduCon, Singapore Research We conduct original research on learning science, technology, and pedagogy. Innovation We promote novel and entrepreneurial projects that improve learning outcomes. Education We work to ensure the latest research and learning technologies have broad impact. 5
  6. 6. The Challenge More research needed on how learners learn • New technologies, pedagogies, and policies are changing how students and teachers approach education • Most research up to now are contextualized only in the Western world à understanding of the Asian context missing Best practices don’t always make it to the classroom • Proven technologies and pedagogies are often overlooked • Students, teachers, and administrators lack data about their effectiveness and how to improve 28 Sep 2017 - 5th EduCon, Singapore 6
