Dr Ng Khar Thoe 3

A lady brimming with wide interests, ideas and passion for lifelong learning, Dr. Ng Khar Thoe has diversified her scope of studies in R&D division to be an advocate for Science Education integrating transdisciplinary approaches supported by blended learning tools. Her research interests lie mainly on enhancing essential [thinking, technology and life (work/survival/entrepreneurial)] skills of learners through technology-enhanced science/mathematics pedagogical approaches including Project-based Activities (PBA) and Problem-based Learning (PBL). She has experience as primary/secondary/ tertiary educator with involvement in many national/regional/international programmes as founder/ judge/reviewer/coordinator/advisor/speaker/consultant/project director. She published extensively with more than 200 publications involving as lead writer (>150), editor and chief editor, of which quite a number of books, modules, refereed/indexed journals as well as papers were referred widely with winning of acclaims and appreciation from many, e.g. ICDE2013, 1RCCS, 2RCCS, to name a few. Her current focus or research interest is to develop blended learning platforms for continuing professional development, inspiring creativity, networking and sustainable living for all.
