Description

Open College is a new NTU CCA Singapore educational initiative for everyone who are passionate about learning and development. The Centre’s new education initiative welcomes all individuals who are enthusiastic about gaining knowledge and new insights.

The focus of the Open College is on flexible learning and transdisciplinarity, with a view to build mind share, bridge capability gaps and promote a culture of lifelong learning.

From July 2021, the Centre will progressively roll out progammes covering creative writing, cultural project development and environmental entrepreneurship and more.

The Open College offers two types of programmes: Discovery and Immersive Series. The Immersion Series are 5-day in-depth and structured programmes led by professional educators, researchers and critical thinkers in their fields of expertise. Through a blend of in-class and offsite training, participants will deep dive into a subject matter and gain new perspectives through a blend of practical projects and discussions to stimulate critical thinking and dialogue.

Discovery programmes are by contrast, shorter, exploratory courses that allow participants to potentially explore topics outside their usual fields or interest, and acquire basic knowledge and skillsets that may be transferrable to other areas of study and work.
