Evolving Practice in Teaching and Learning

Evolving Practice in Teaching and Learning is about building faculty members' capacity in design, facilitation, assessment in interactive learning, and experiential learning.

We collaborate with faculty members to understand their teaching practice as it evolves with experience, reflection and knowledge. We also support our Ph.D. students to prepare them for their future role as faculty members, and our undergraduate students to be effective learners.

Professional Development Programme

We design our Faculty Professional Development Programme based on principles of effective teaching and learning.

Support for Students

We support our Ph.D. students in their teaching role as future faculty members, and undergraduate students on effective learning skills.


Come join us at our events and be part of the SMU learning community!
