Educator-in-Residence Programme

About EiRP

The international higher education landscape is becoming more complex because of factors such as ever greater internationalisation, the increasing diversity in and numbers of students, exponential growth in the use of information technology in education, the insights of the learning sciences as to how learning works, and increased governmental demands for accountability and productivity. In a global, research-intensive university such as NUS, which values high quality education, it is important that faculty members, students, and administrators get the opportunity to engage with internationally recognised thinkers and practitioners of higher education.

The Educator-in-Residence Programme (EiRP) is a CDTL initiative that aims to foster dialogue between the NUS academic community and distinguished educators from around the world. Through this programme, CDTL aims periodically to invite esteemed educators to NUS for extended periods of time and have them interact with academics, graduate and undergraduate students, and educational leaders on matters that are of interest to them. The EiRP features a public lecture that is funded by the Ruth Wong Memorial Fund; staff and student seminars, roundtables, and workshops; as well as informal small-group discussions.

CDTL hopes that the NUS community will strongly support the EiRP and benefit from these evidence-based discussions on learning and  teaching. In this way, NUS will be able to maintain and indeed enhance its position at the cutting edge of educational practice, research and innovation.
