DYOM Design Your Own Module

This is a student’s self-initiated and self-designed 1000 level module. Hall residents are welcome to form groups to embark on Hall-based DYOM module that includes hall projects as a component.

Module Description

The idea of Design-Your-Own-Module (DYOM) was mooted in NUS to encourage our students to explore learning beyond their own disciplines, via edX Massive Open Online Courses (better known as MOOCs), or by engaging NUS teachers, NUS administrative staff or industry leaders.

Additionally, students may also explore doing DYOM in groups of 10 (or more), with supervision by NUS academics, skilled administrative staff, or industry experts.  The objective is to empower students in their learning journey, giving them more flexibility in planning their studies without disruption to their structured disciplinary studies.  It is an option for students to pursue interests outside their disciplines, broadening their knowledge, and encouraging them to see “learning” as a lifetime endeavour.
