The key underlying andragogical principle of the MLS is knowledge construction, sharing and application within a social constructivist paradigm. Under such a paradigm, MLS participants are expected to learn beyond the inputs of the courses by engaging in deep and meaningful social generation of knowledge. The various learning platforms in the MLS are designed to provide opportunities for interactions among participants, to construct, share and apply new knowledge. There is an intentional integration of learning across learning platforms for greater learning efficacy.
The MLS has been designed to maximise participants’ learning through the following learning platforms:
- Core and Electives
- Capstone Project
- Regional Visit (RV) or Learning Experiences Beyond Campus (LEBC)
- Professional Conversations
