CRADLE is supported directly by the University and competitive research grants from external funding agencies. The support for Science of Learning research covers areas such as brain-based education; data analytics for learning; the efficacy of pedagogical approaches and educational technologies; and learning in out of school contexts.
2) CRADLE projects also benefit from a portion of the $S10 million Ministry of Education’s Tertiary Research Fund (TRF). Started in 2015, these competitive grants focus on translating innovative teaching and learning applications in higher education to the Singaporean context.
4) Several of CRADLE’s applied research projects are funded by the Singapore Millennium Foundation and NTU EdEx grants. Both of these grant programmes support the development of cutting-edge education technologies that can demonstrably benefit student learning. Projects include mobile applications for peer-to-peer education and a digital support system for helping instructors engage their students in collaborative activities.
