SkillsFuture Singapore has launched the Digital Andragogy Blueprint, a practical guide designed to provide Singapore’s educators with recommendations and strategies for adult instruction and learning. It was produced by the Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) in collaboration with Microsoft.
It offers a curated collection of digital tools aligned with specific learning objectives. By facilitating the adoption of digital tools among adult educators, the blueprint also aims to improve the quality and industry relevance of skills training.
Minister of State for Education and Manpower Gan Siow Huang, said: “The use of educational technology paired with sound andragogy can enhance CET accessibility, and overall learning experience and effectiveness for learners.”
The Industry Practice Master of Digital Economy programme is another course designed to support the digital upskilling of mid-career workers. The programme, launched by the Singapore Management University Academy and supported by SSG, aims to bridge the gap between academia and industry, and to equip learners with the skills and knowledge required to upskill or transition into the digital economy. It will feature two tracks of specialisations: data protection and data governance, and digital supply chain and intelligence.
