On the development of an IT-enhanced environmental science module
Yan, Y. K., Lim, S. S. L., Khoo, G. S., & Wong, A. F. L. (1996, November). On the development of an IT-enhanced environmental science module. Paper presented at the ERA-AARE Joint Conference, Singapore.
In this paper, we discuss our efforts in curriculum development of an environmental science module that will be conducted in a networked teaching and learning environment, complemented by laboratory sessions and field work. The aim of the curriculum is to promote collaborative and distributed learning of environmental science that emphasizes the acquisition of higher order thinking skills. Some aspects of the curriculum that will be highlighted include the contents of an interactive multimedia teaching system for self-paced learning, and scenario generators that allow the participants to experiment with hypothetical environmental situations.
