NIE, MOE and KKH organise inaugural education research symposium

More than 120 participants gathered at the National Institute of Education (NIE) on Thursday to discuss education research and the cognitive development of children with special needs or who are not strong academically.

Organised by the NIE with the support of the Ministry of Education (MOE) and KK Women's and Children's Hospital (KKH), the inaugural symposium will feature several researchers, clinicians, psychologists, educational leaders and policy makers and their recent research findings, some of which include early intervention programmes and tools to help these children learn to the best of their abilities.

Led by Dr Kerry Lee, who is associate professor and the head of the Centre for Research in Pedagogy and Practice and the Applied Cognitive Development Laboratory at NIE, the symposium is a platform for greater multi-disciplinary research collaborations between NIE, MOE and KKH.
