More information about the award and its criteria can be found here.

Associate Professor of Accounting (Education) and Associate Dean (Teaching and Curriculum), Seow Poh Sun says, “I am motivated to develop various digital learning tools as I often receive feedback from students that they would like to practise their coursework outside of the classroom. However, they want to do so in an engaging and interactive format, rather than via traditional paper assignments. While technology-enhanced learning can help to better engage students in their learning process, at the end of the day, teaching is really about motivating and inspiring students to be curious and excited about learning.”
