This blog houses the ravings and rantings of Dr Ashley Tan.
In 2002, I was awarded the Overseas Graduate Scholarship by the National Institute of Education (NIE), Singapore, to pursue a Ph.D. in Instructional Systems Technology at Indiana University, Bloomington, USA.
I returned to NIE in 2006 as a faculty member and teacher educator. Up until 30 June 2014, I was the Head of the Centre for e-Learning (CeL).
Before all this, I was a military instructor, classroom teacher, and distance educator. I been an educator for almost 30 years.
On 31 July 2014, I left the National Institute of Education, Singapore to be an education consultant and facilitator of professional development on technology-enabled learning and systemic change.
I participate actively in a few research and funding review committees. I am not just an educator, I am also a watchdog.
For more information on what I used to do, what I currently do, and how I might add value to what you do, please visit my Consultancy & Service page.
I am often asked to provide a biography for promotional materials or notifications, so I have prepared a general biography that that my collaborators can use.
When circumstances dictate, I provide more specific biographies based on the context of work, e.g., a biography that focuses on my flipped learning background and efforts when I am involved in conducting seminars or facilitating workshops on flipping.
I do not blog for views. I blog my views.
Most of the thoughts I leave in this blog are not fully formed. I do this to learn and to shape my thoughts on educational technologies and technology-mediated pedagogies.
I am an edu-explorer. I promise to walk on the edge of reason and let you know what I see.
