The Institute for Pedagogical Innovation, Research & Excellence (InsPIRE)

InsPIRE mission graphic

In response to a rapidly changing world driven by technology, increasing interconnectedness, and environmental forces, the Institute for Pedagogical Innovation, Research & Excellence (InsPIRE) was set up as part of the NTU 2025 Education Strategy to better prepare students for success in their lives and livelihoods - via development of attributes embodied by the 3C’s: Character, Competence and Cognitive Agility.

Thriving in today’s educational climate not only requires mastering content knowledge; students must also be proficient in critical thinking, communication, teamwork, creativity, and have an interdisciplinary approach to solving real-world challenges. To create an authentic learning environment to cultivate these skills requires constant evaluation, adaptation, and innovation of educational strategies, which is what this new institute aims to achieve.

We are located at S4-B4B-30. You may also email us at [email protected].
