The lab serves to support projects and collaborations that drive the institute’s international strategic interests. Here is one of the main initiatives which the lab participates in.
Global Education Innovation Initiative with Harvard University
The Global Education Innovation Initiative (GEII), a multinational collaborative project helmed by the Harvard Graduate School of Education, discusses preparing students for citizenship and economic participation in the 21st century, including the need to acquire key competencies and learn skills, such as digital, civic, self-knowledge and interpersonal competencies, among others that go beyond the basics. NIE is a partner of the GEII. The NIE team comprising NIE Director, Professor Tan Oon Seng, Professor Low Ee Ling and Associate Professor Ng Pak Tee is part of the Singapore Case Study, which examines the systemic efforts that Singapore took in its education system in order to prepare students for the realities of the 21st century global workplace and society. Other partner countries include Chile, China, Colombia, India, Mexico and USA.
