On April 29, the NUS University Awards Ceremony included the recognition of the seven newly inducted Fellows for the NUS Teaching Academy. I was honored to be part of the group and attended the ceremony with some of the best of the NUS professors in medicine, law, arts, sciences and humanities. It was a deep honor to be part of the Teaching Academy, and I look forward to working closely with the fellows to help shape some of the NUS policies and innovations in teaching, learning and educational research. The listing of the new fellows is at this site – http://nus.edu.sg/uawards/2016/teachingnewfellow.php, and more information on the NUS teaching academy can be found at their web site at http://www.nus.edu.sg/teachingacademy/. I have already learned a lot from the many events at NUS related to Teaching and Learning, and as a Fellow I can help be even more closely connected to this dynamic university and its very interesting group of scholars!
