Synopsis of Plenary Talk 1
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: What? Why? How?

Institutions of higher learning are responsible for educating the next generation of the workforce to
effectively manage the challenges of the future. For this the faculty must ensure that the training &
education students get conforms to best evidence education with constant refinement and innovation.
However most institutions narrowly interpreted the word scholarship to include only research activities.

During 1990s, Ernest Boyer advocated a wider concept of ‘scholarship’ which was further refined by Glassick
in 2000 and now includes the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Today, in the 21st century, many
institutions of higher learning recognise SoTL as one key pathway to enhance and develop student learning
as well as to advance the educational mission of the institution. The presentation will share on the key
aspects of SoTL, rationale for incorporating it and some best practices of applying SoTL.

A/Prof Tan Swee Liang Plenary Speaker’s Profile

Her research interests lie in the areas of financial sector development
and education (technology-enabled learning), and has published
widely on these topics. She has been invited as a panellist, presenter
and guest speaker at numerous local and overseas conferences and
workshops.

Synopsis of Plenary Talk 2

Building Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) as a Faculty Professional Competency to Engage
Students to be Active Learners

In this keynote address, Swee Liang will focus on SoTL as a key enabler for faculty members to engage students
to be active learners. The address will also cover strategies for change management through CTE’s programmes
and engagement with senior management and faculty members. She will present a research-based case study
on using adaptive technology for personalised learning in an undergraduate course.

The address concludes with personal reflections on the urgency and need for SoTL as a key component of faculty
professional competency.
