The Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS) has launched The Heart of Learning book to commemorate its status as an autonomous university.
The 24-chapter book provides an overview of SUSS’s educational approach, reinforcing the roles it seeks to play in the evolving tertiary education landscape in Singapore by incorporating different approaches and activities into the heart of learning at the University. This book is written by SUSS faculty who share their rich and diverse perspectives on today’s socio-economic issues and challenges, the impact of university education now and beyond, and how higher education should be broadened to support learning as a lifelong habit.
The Heart of Learning aims to inspire change, and communicate SUSS’s character and passion through its:
- Sense of social mission and service to society;
- Practice educational orientation that gives direct application to the learning acquired and impact in the respective professions; and
- Focus on the development of key lifelong learning skills in its learners
Since its inception in 2005, the University has been providing opportunities for lifelong learning to learners of all ages, enabling them to upgrade their skills and qualifications. This book serves as a reminder to all to treat learning as a journey throughout life, and to leverage the capacity of learning to drive positive social change.
