Abstract

SIM University (UniSIM), Singapore’s first privately-funded university, caters to working adults in Singapore. It currently offers over 40 undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes through its four schools. The university is committed to helping busy working adult learners manage their studies by providing a flexible learning environment. Blended learning is one such initiative. While courses are designed for adult learners to meet the standards set by the curriculum developers and the university, it is imperative that there are ways to indicate that learning has taken place. This paper proposes an evaluation framework to help identify, capture and reflect learning for Speaking With Confidence (COR 157), a blended learning level one core course for undergraduates. This framework would be of interest to adult learners, faculty and administrators.
