We are honoured and excited to host the 10th eLearning Forum Asia (eLFA 2015) in Singapore. This conference will be one of the events marking the University’s 10th anniversary celebrations in 2015.
As one of Singapore’s e-learning pioneers, UniSIM is witness to the lasting imprint of technology on the higher education landscape. This year’s theme, “Innovations in education: Responding intelligently to diverse learning needs”, engages thought leaders and educational practitioners who have recognised and creatively incorporated those innovations in their pedagogical practices.
Being committed to enabling and equipping our students to be lifelong learners, UniSIM is also including a presentation on technology for inclusive education.
So, join us from 17 to 19 June 2015 for engaging discussions and networking opportunities with like-minded members of the educational community in the Garden City of Singapore. If you’re coming from overseas, plan to linger a while longer to take in the sights of multicultural Singapore and be part also of the city-state’s 50th anniversary celebration!

Innovations in education have transformed the higher education landscape over the past decade. Recent advances in technology have extended the reach of education to previously under-served populations, making learning more inclusive (e.g., with assistive technology and MOOCs) and personalised (e.g., through the use of learning analytics).
At the same time, learning is now more thoughtfully designed to be student-centred, incorporating appropriate uses of technology that enhance, enrich, and lead to more satisfying and personalised learning experiences. Educators have also actively experimented with innovative teaching practices that tap technology and incorporate it in active and collaborative learning.
The theme for eLFA2015 – Innovations in education: Responding intelligently to diverse learning needs – takes a close look at recent developments and innovations in the education ecosystem, with a view to identify emerging technologies and innovative pedagogical practices that will become the mainstay of the educational landscape in the next decade.
Together, participants and delegates will identify and share novel ideas, pedagogical approaches, and educational technology that they have successfully incorporated in their teaching, learning design, and assessment of students’ learning in both formal and informal contexts.
The scope of the conference includes, but is not limited to, recent developments in the following areas:
The conference will be held at SIM HQ Blk D - Performing Arts Theatre.
