This session is held on 26 June, 7.30pm - 9.30pm. Registration will close on 16 June, 2359 hrs.

The four-part series of SIG - Learning Design in 2023 addresses the 4 Ps in Learning Design (Person, Principles, Process, and Practice). This second workshop targets the "Principles" in learning design. It explores the principles underpinning curriculum design, referenced by the WSQ Course Proposal and 6 Principles of Learning Design. 

Join the panel speakers (Bryan Tan, Dr Michael Choy, Eunice Lim and Darren Tjan) to reconsider curriculum planning in the post-pandemic era. Using the WSQ Course Proposal as the frame of reference, underpinned by 6 Principles of Learning Design, this session will allow you to explore curriculum planning and constructive alignment concepts. Extending to academic and Pre-Employment Training courseware, you will discuss modern day curriculum design in current blended learning spaces driven by technological advances (e.g. Generative AI). We will also have experienced practitioners to share their vast experience during the SIG session.


This is a fully online session conducted via ZOOM. Participants can participate in the session from any venue of their convenience with a laptop / device that is compatible with ZOOM. More details on participating in the session will be sent to the confirmed registrants.

What Is The Session About?

Using the panel discussion approach, both Bryan and Dr Michael will moderate the sharing of critical incidents by Ms Eunice Lim and Mr Darren Tjan, diving into WSQ and non-WSQ curriculum. We will reference the WSQ Course Proposal as a start point where Singapore designers would be familiar with, and then moving into planning of blended curriculum with the contexts of training providers and enterprises. The second reference point will be tech-enabled curriculum planning, especially with the use of Generative AI (e.g. ChatGPT). How will Generative AI impact curriculum and courseware design, especially in the competency-based assessment landscape?
