Dean, Academic and Strategic Development

The key function of the Strategic Planning and Academic Quality (SPAQ) office is to tap on the synergies and linkages between strategic planning and evidence-informed academic quality enhancement efforts to aid institute-wide planning, decision-making and quality assurance.
IN-Learning’s key focus areas include initiating innovative and technology mediated pedagogies, support for a professional development framework for faculty, student teachers and non-academic staff, and forging key alliances with global technology leaders in education.

CJ Koh Professorial Lecture Series was launched by the Office of Education Research on 1 March 2011. It was conceptualised for the purpose of knowledge building and sharing with our internal, external and international stakeholders in education, who can benefit from the information shared during each CJ Koh Professorship visit. Since 2016, the Professorship and Lecture Series have since been moved under the purview of the Office of Strategic Planning and Academic Quality.
