Making Learning Meaningful and Authentic

Introduction

Our students' learning experience is at the heart of what we do, whether we design or teach a course. We strive in our own way to make our students' learning journey a fulfilling one by bringing relevance, authenticity, and meaning to their learning. In this symposium, our speakers share their perspectives on how to make learning meaningful and authentic in a holistic manner - starting from course design, to learning interactions and assessments.
