“Twenty-eight NUS students from the College of Alice and Peter Tan (CAPT) and Residential College 4 (RC4) embarked on an unforgettable 15-day journey to a land of blue skies and welcoming hearts on the African continent as part of the Study Trips for Engagement and EnRichment (STEER) Botswana programme. Organised by CAPT, in conjunction with RC4 and NUS International Relations Office, STEER Botswana introduced students to the educational, environmental and economic sectors of the region through one of its most politically stable states. The trip was held from 21 May to 5 June and led by CAPT faculty Dr Tan Lai Yong, Ms Wong Soon Fen and Dr Kevin McGahan (NUS Political Science Department).”
“Political Science students (Gregory Tan, Darren Cheong and Dion Shenise D’Costa) also attended!”
Residential Colleges Teaching Awards AY2015/2016
Since 2013, the Residential Colleges Teaching Excellence Awards have been awarded to outstanding faculty members for their exceptional work as facilitators of high quality teaching in the living and learning setting. As a sign of how the teaching and learning landscape has evolved in the RCs, and how teaching excellence has diversified, this year saw the introduction of 2 new award categories to the RC teaching awards: the Residential Colleges Teaching Commendation, which serves to encourage faculty members who have demonstrated a good understanding and application of residential college teaching; and the Residential Colleges Teaching Excellence Award Honour Roll, which acknowledges the consistent excellent work of faculty who have won the RC Teaching Excellence Award three times.
