  • With the passion for Science and a Physicist at heart, Mohamed Faizal started his career as a trained Science educator in 2007. He strives to instil the love for Science in all his students through inquiry and differentiated instructions. He has spearheaded a tripartite partnership project on animal conservation with Nanyang Polytechnic and Singapore Zoo. The project has given birth to the Education@Zoo application for iPhone and iPad which was successfully launched in 2012. Mohamed Faizal has held key leadership position in the Science department and led various Professional Learning Community (PLC) teams. His team has designed and implemented learning packages involving problem-based learning (PBL), experiential learning and differentiated instruction based on multiple intelligence theory. Currently, his interests are in physics education, primary and lower secondary science, flipped classroom and semiotics.
