The Institute for the Application of Learning Science and Educational Technology (ALSET) was founded in 2016 to support research and innovation in education at NUS. Our work falls under three main pillars of activity:

  • Research: We aim to become a leading hub for learning science and education technology researchers in Asia. We are particularly interested in investigating the behavioral and cultural attributes of Asian learners, but open to supporting any research that will contribute meaningfully to the field.
  • Innovation: We support the creation, evaluation, and application of innovative educational technologies and practices. We also help manage the NUS Data Lake, an exciting new resource for education researchers that compiles detailed data on student backgrounds, behaviors, and outcomes.
  • Education: We work in partnership with other NUS stakeholders to ensure that best practices are actually implemented in the classroom. We also provide courses, programs, and content directly to students and adult learners that help them apply best practices in their own lives.
