CNSG's Curriculum Development Unit - Description
As eCommerce technology, skill and knowledge constantly and rapidly change, training and retraining of the relevant workforce will be critical to keep pace with the change. In the foreseeable future, there will also arise a need for constant testing, evaluation and benchmarking of available eCommerce skills. CNSG Curriculum Development Unit will provide courses that will flexibly and speedily respond to meet the market demand and changing needs. IOeC will not only focus on local and classroom-based eCommerce training and education, but on-line and cyberspace learning. The faculty will be people in the thick of these changes, practitioners whose knowledge will be current and cutting edge. It can offer a repository of successful eCommerce case studies and methodologies and make it available.
CNSG Curriculum Development Unit, via its collaboration with local/overseas institution and industry players will issue certification for eCommerce skills and knowledge. CNSG Curriculum Development Unit will double up as an eCommerce research centre and think tank for students, academics and practitioners to conduct and coordinate IT research.Lecturers and Professors from institutions of these countries will be trained in the course materials based on the Higher Learning Institution's curriculum for 4 weeks in Singapore as part of the overall packages. If keen, CNSG Curriculum Development Unit, and Higher Learning Institutions may want to work out the potential of JV arrangements into this education venture with most of the risk being borned by the industry. This may end up with Singapore's Higher Learning Institutions becoming the top enabler/seeder for curriculum proliferation regionally.
CNSG Curriculum Development Unit is
working with Higher Learning Institutions in Singapore on the possibility of 'exporting' its courses
curriculum to institutes of higher learning in emerging economies like Bahrain,
Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Maldives and Pakistan.
