At inlab, we have created a suite of learning innovation programmes and activities called innovSeries, which are designed to empower the Training and Adult Education (TAE) professionals to innovate their training beyond the norm and maximize the efficacy of individual's learning back in the actual workplace. We also run special projects to push boundaries on adult pedagogical innovation and research.

Collectively, our programmes, activities and special projects bring together different TAE stakeholders to Explore, Collaborate and Innovate

Special Projects

IAL is growing a strong track record in pedagogical innovation and research, with a sound reputation as the leading Training and Adult Education (TAE) institute in Singapore. To build on our research, IAL has plans to develop a research translation stream and create a common space for co-developing, trialing and experimentation by IAL and its partners. Our current projects include:

1. Leveraging Productive Failure (PF) for Adult Learning

The project calls on a select group of Adult Educators to co-develop a framework / toolbox / guideline on PF (Productive Failure) for Adult Learning through insights and findings from designing and trialing PF interventions in real learning environments. Interested participants will be selected based on the diversity required in the project.
