Reasons to Attend ASCILITE 2019

The Future Role of ICT By Professor Cheah Horn Mun, Assistant Provost, SUSS

Conference Theme

The theme of ASCILITE 2019 "Personalised Learning. Diverse Goals. One Heart." brings together the focus on the learner's needs in the use of technology and sound pedagogical practices. It recognizes the diverse motivation behind each learner in the design of curriculum and the common goal in contributing to the betterment of the global society. Singapore, being the place for people of different ethnicity, culture and religion to pursue their passion and dreams, personifies the idea of “Diverse Goals” but “One Heart”. This theme also coincides with the educational aspiration of Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) that regardless of students’ goals, different backgrounds or life stages, it aims to equip them with the real-world knowledge and practice-oriented skills to excel, both in life and in their chosen career. Welcome to ASCILITE 2019 in the city state Singapore.
