13th Request for Proposal – ERFP (Research/Development)
Thursday, 13 November 2014
The Office of Education Research (OER) is pleased to
announce its 13th Request for Proposal (RFP). In this third tranche of funding,
OER seeks to encourage research in Scaling, Translation and Knowledge
Management that may facilitate the synthesis of research findings from projects
in different disciplines, as well as develop scalable pedagogical interventions
to enable systemic improvement in the education system.
Special Focus on (I) Collaborative Problem Solving; and (II) System
Studies in Pedagogies and Educational Outcomes – CORE Research Programme
notion of Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) has always been fundamentally
important in the history of human progress. In today’s highly-networked,
technology-mediated knowledge economies characterised by complexity and rapid
change, CPS bears much universal applicability.
invites proposals that examine the phenomenon of CPS from a range of
theoretical, methodological and disciplinary lenses. Proposals with
interdisciplinary and/or transdisciplinary perspectives are most welcome.
The second special focus on the CORE
Research Programme focuses on understanding what goes on and what works in the
Singapore classroom – more specifically, the instructional core. It is of
interest to the MOE and schools to gain a better understanding of what works in
the instructional core in our classrooms and schools as a critical step in the
next developmental stage of our education system.
OER invites proposals that study and measure the patterns of pedagogical
practices in Singapore schools, and their impact on student outcomes.
Applicants must send in their formal applications by 19 January
