Conceptualising a framework for engaged learning in the context of IT masterplan II in Singapore
Issue Date: 
Teaching and Learning, 25(1),31-47
Recent literature has emphasised active and learner-centred learning as opposed to passive and didactic methods of learning. The term "engaged learning" is often used synonymously with active learning, self-directed learning, collaborative learning and other similar canstructivist pedagogics. In this paper, we will track how Singapore's education system has advancedfrorn certain key initiatives in recent years to the next lap of embracing the engaged learning paradigm. We propose a definition and some indicators of engaged learning that are relevant to the Singapore context and advance a framework for bringing about engaged learning. In particular, the Instructional Science Academic Group
of the National Institute of Education (NIE) will be developing a programme based on this framework of engaged learning for preservice and in-service teacher education and professional development. While this framework is conceptualised for teacher education and professional development, its components provide the basis for classroom teachers and administrators to design and implement effective instructional programmes that promote engaged learning in Singapore schools.
