Technology-integrated learning refers to a study experience in which students achieve a given set of learning outcomes by interacting in more than one medium.
This approach involves the meaningful and balanced use of digital media such as recorded lectures, podcasts, text or graphics, with other elements such as a video or quiz. It may even encompass active learning methods such as student-generated blogs, where appropriate.
With technology-integrated learning, students will not only reap the benefits of face-to-face guidance and collaboration, but also – in carrying out some of their learning online – benefit from added flexibility and control over the time, place, path and pace of learning.

Dr Keng Yam Tony Tan1, 7th President of Republic of Singapore and Mr Kwok Fook Seng2, Singapore’s High Commissioner to Australia are both the recipients of the Honorary Doctorate from the University.
