Abstract: 
The purpose of this study is to explore the complex nature of Singapore teachers’
beliefs about knowledge and learning and how these beliefs influence pedagogical practices in
their classes. This paper presents findings from a large-scale survey study with 1806 teachers
in Singapore. Data revealed that while teachers’ beliefs about pedagogies, knowledge and
learning were largely consistent, they also believed and practiced both teacher-centered and
learner-centered pedagogies and assessment methods
