A White Paper on Cyber-Physical Learning

We launched a white paper on cyber-physical learning at the 2022 Singapore National Technology Enhanced Learning (NTEL) Conference as a commemoration.

"It is a great pleasure to launch this white paper on cyber-physical learning at the Singapore’s 2022 National Technology Enhanced Learning (NTEL) Conference as a commemoration.

The NTEL conference was initiated by the Singapore’s Ministry of Education (MOE) in 2015. Co-organised by the six local autonomous universities (AUs), it aims to inspire teaching and learning transformation through the adoption of technology-enhanced learning strategies in higher education.

The 2022 NTEL conference is hosted by the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) in collaboration with the other AUs on 27 and 28 October 2022. The theme of the conference is “Empowering Learning in the Cyber-Physical Era”.

SUTD’s Office of Digital Learning (ODL) mooted the idea of this white paper to provide an overview of cyber-physical learning and explore the various approaches taken by universities around the world in cyber-physical learning. It also presents SUTD’s campusX initiatives. The white paper recognises and calls for the need for stakeholder engagement and partnerships.

I thank all the authors and contributors for this white paper and the Learning Sciences Lab of ODL for leading and producing the paper. My special thanks to the 2022 NTEL organising and working committee members from the six AUs and our partner institutions (Tecnológico de Monterrey from Mexico, Zhejiang University from China, Institute for Adult Learning from Singapore University of Social Sciences, Singapore Polytechnic from Singapore, and SkillsFuture Singapore) for their collaborative efforts in making this possible. My colleagues and I hope that you find the white paper useful for your institutional efforts towards cyber-physical learning and we invite you to collaborate with us on our SUTD campusX initiatives and programmes."

Yours sincerely
Professor Pey Kin Leong
