SIM Management House
The focus is on how to help adult learners or mature students learn more effectively and efficiently, at their own pace, space and time. The three key areas are:
Using technology to engage learners involves adapting instructional strategies that activate prior knowledge, facilitate cognitive development and promote long-term retention and transfer of skills to the workplace. What have we learned from using technology to engage learners?. Does technology adapt to specific instructional technologies or vice-versa? Is there an ¬ďe-Pedagogy¬ď that suits the ¬ďNet Generation¬ď of learners?
Empowering Teaching and Learning
The roles and expectations for teaching and learning are changing, especially in an environment where technology prevails. Does technology add to a larger divide between teaching and learning, or is it a bridge to bring teaching and learning, knowledge and experience closer together? In what ways does technology empower teachers to expand their teaching strategies/practices and learners to express themselves?
The proliferation of technology in education and training is relentless. With the increased adoption of technology, learning anywhere, anyplace and anytime is increasingly a reality which is especially welcomed by part-time adult learners who are busy professionals. But how do we choose the right technology which can give the best impact on learning? How do we avoid putting technology first before pedagogy in our need or desire to free-up teaching and learning from the constraints of the classroom? Are we creating opportunities to support technological innovations that enhance curricula development or just creating more bells and whistles?
