AUN-TEPL Webinar Series 2023 - 2024

Here is a space where members of the ASEAN University Network (AUN) can research, practise, and share knowledge within a learning community. In particular, this community will be focused on the field of personalised learning and the myriad technological tools. which can help us to leverage each student’s unique needs, preferences, and level of competency so as to increase the effectiveness of learning. In order to provide meaningful personalised learning experiences through the use of technology, we are constantly looking for best practices, technological tools or pedagogical approaches, or simply to deepen our understanding of TEPL and its possibilities.


Through the AUN-TEPL Webinar Series, we will have opportunities to hear from educators and experts who share their valuable knowledge, research and experiences on a range of topics in the TEPL domain. We began in April 2020 with the topic of ‘Creating Effective and Impactful Instructional Videos’, one of the most commonly used modes of content delivery to facilitate online, self-paced or differentiated learning. In this first webinar, faculty members from the different fields of language, medicine and digital arts in Mahidol University shared their experiences and tips on video creation. Next, we were introduced to the feedback system which was deployed to support competency development in the area of Information Literacy in Mahidol University. This was followed by a sharing by the Singapore Management University about its ongoing effort to develop a university-wide learning outcomes feedback system which serves to track, collect comprehensive feedback and facilitate the mastery of a suite of 21st century skills for every graduate.


Please follow our event updates as this webinar series continues to curate these live webinar sessions for the AUN community. Engage the presenters in the Q&A sessions, hear experts and fellow practitioners share their insights, and find out how you can be involved in the educational research collaboration in this thematic network.


We are glad to share with you the recordings of past webinars below.

Writing Cases and Teaching Notes for Games

Most of the games presented at LIFE 2023 are accompanied by a case and a teaching note. These documents will typically be written after each game project development is complete.

The cases explain the game in detail and outline the concepts and theories that it accomplishes while the Teaching Notes also contain lesson plans which faculty users may use to guide their classes on utilizing the game effective.

Teaching & Assessment in the Age of AI

4th Aug 2023
3.00pm - 5.00pm (SGT, GMT+8)

Since coming to prominence early this year, Generative Artificial Intelligence (GAI) technology continues to grow in sophistication and ubiquity. While causing concern among some University educators, many others have embraced the new opportunities and possibilities by using GAI tools to enhance teaching and learning.

To showcase these possibilities and hopefully, spawn new ones, the AUN-TEPL thematic network organises a webinar "Teaching & Assessment in the Age of AI". In this webinar, participants get to hear from three trailblazing university instructors who have used GAI technology to innovate classroom teaching and enhance assessment practices.

The webinar covers the following areas:


  1. Introduction to Generative AI (LLM)

  2. Use of Generative AI as a teaching tool

  3. Redesigning assessment in the age of AI and Ethical Considerations.


At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Understand and use the capabilities and affordances of LLM

  • Redesign course outline and adjust pedagogy to leverage LLM

  • Use LLM as a teaching tool

  • Redesign assessments in the presence of LLM available to students

We believe their insights will spark new ideas as you consider the wider implications of teaching in the age of GAI tools.
