Pak Tee’s vast experience as a teacher educator and academic in Singapore shines through in his enthusiastic and engaging presentation style. In this session he will split the morning into a ‘keynote’ address and a workshop. In the keynote, he will explain why educational change is so necessary even when we are successful. He will also discuss the importance of leadership during the change process. Based on the Singapore experience (set out in his book “Learning from Singapore: The Power of Paradoxes”), he will speak about the challenges of improving curriculum and pedagogy in schools. He will also share the paradoxes, key success factors and the lessons Singaporean education learned along the way.
During the workshop segment, he will facilitate participants in exploring some practical aspects of an important policy initiative in Singapore called “Teach Less Learn More” (TLLM). TLLM encourages educators to reflect upon the why, what and how of teaching and learning, and encourages students to become engaged learners. TLLM promotes the joy of learning and learning for life (and sounds like it might well be in line with the tackling workload challenges we are facing here too).
Pak Tee Ng is a member of the Scottish Government’s international council of education advisors and presented at the 2019 SLF
