Educating and training the next generation of thinkers, innovators, leaders and lifelong learners is central to our mission. 

Within this pillar our goals are:

Future-ready graduates
We will equip NTU students with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in rapidly changing work and living environments.

Beyond grades
To maximise learning outcomes for students, we will broaden the range of programmes outside of the classroom that offer experiential learning and unique learning opportunities to complement traditional classroom education.

Research immersion
We will integrate research and education activities more closely, giving students increased opportunities to engage in research and creative work in their undergraduate journey.

Lifelong learning
We will help students navigate through the dynamic changes in the workplace and develop a mindset that prepares them for lifelong learning. We aim to become a leading provider of continuing education.

Future of education
We aim to share NTU’s unique strengths in educational research, EdTech, science of learning, and pedagogical techniques through strategic collaborations with other institutions.

NTU will intensify its focus on interdisciplinary approaches across both Education and Research, and expand holistic learning opportunities for students.

  • New interdisciplinary programmes
  • New learning spaces and models that tap into advances in the science, art and technology of learning
  • New industry-relevant, modular continuing education course offerings
  • Synergistic integration of NTU’s unique strengths with the unique capabilities of the National Institute of Education (NIE) and the National Institute of Early Childhood Development (NIEC)

Institute for Pedagogical Innovation, Research and Excellence (InsPIRE)

InsPIRE will promote excellence in teaching and enhance student learning. 

The institute will integrate NTU’s centres and leverage the strengths and expertise of professors and researchers across the University. 

It will build stronger synergies across pedagogy, technology, research and scholarship on teaching and learning.

Focus areas include: 
  • the science of learning
  • inspiring innovation in teaching
  • facilitating the remaking of education at NTU
  • supporting students to become effective lifelong learners

Harnessing the science, art and technology of learning

How can universities best equip learners of the 21st century? 
This challenge will draw on approaches to the science, art and technology of learning, including pedagogical research, lifelong learning models, neuroscience, and educator training to benefit learners of all ages.
