Teaching Support

Welcome Message

Associates are the lynchpins in the learning and teaching environment at Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS). Being industry experts in your own right, you engage, inspire, and enable our students to innovatively apply the knowledge and skills they learn at their workplace. Like most of our associates, you’ll also probably gain from the valuable insights that your students share during the course of your interactions.

To support you in your various teaching and course development roles at SUSS, the Teaching & Learning Centre (TLC) has put together a range of online modules, workshops and talks, and resources that you can tap on. TLC faculty members are also on hand to mentor and support you in your teaching endeavours, so feel free to stop by for a chat with any of us.

Community Building

Building a community with shared interests and goals takes time. At TLC, we’re acutely aware of that – which is why we provide several avenues for associates to bond with each other and with the SUSS faculty.

Innovation Seed Grant

To further nurture and build this culture of informed practice, we’re launching the Innovative Seed Grant in July 2014. The aim is to encourage associate faculty members who have taught at SUSS for at least two semesters to explore innovative approaches to teaching (which may include the incorporation of technology), with the view to improving our students’ learning and enhancing their learning experience.

Associate Faculty Champion Programme

Since 2012, schools have been nominating one associate each year to be its Associate Faculty Champion. Working closely with TLC faculty, the AFCs shape and implement their pedagogical inquiry in their courses over the period of a calendar year. The data collected are systematically analysed and evaluated, resulting in concrete recommendations to improve the course delivery and students’ learning. These projects have yielded tangible initiatives and improvements at the course- and programme-level.
