|The Ministry of Education (MOE) defines higher education as any form of education that happens after one’s secondary education. (MOE, 2010) This includes autonomous universities, private universities and institutions, polytechnics and Institute of Technical Education (ITE). The market for higher education in Singapore is relatively huge as indicated by the number and types of institutes; however, we will only focus on education that confers degrees. In Singapore, there a generally 3 ways in obtaining a degree: studying in a public university, studying in a private university or studying abroad.|
In line with the strategic vision of NUS to become a global knowledge enterprise, the NUS Entrepreneurship Centre has been established with the mission to nurture the spirit of entrepreneurship and innovation among the NUS community through education and outreach activities, and to advance knowledge of technology venturing practice through research. A university level centre and a unit of NUS Enterprise , the centre integrates its three main functions -- entrepreneurship education, research and outreach -- in a synergistic manner to inject an entrepreneurial dimension to NUS education, to mentor technology spin-offs by NUS professors, researchers and students, and to provide entrepreneurial thought leadership to the venture community of Singapore and beyond.

1. Subject matter Content knowledge: Knowledge of foundational ideas and conceptual schemes, data and procedures within a specific subject matter area.
2. Pedagogical knowledge: Knowledge of generic principles and strategies of classroom instruction (e.g., instructional models and integration of technology) and management.
3. (New to me but looks useful to explain/expand the original PCK framework) Knowledge of schools: Knowledge of educational contexts, i.e., the place of the classroom in the school, school in the community and other social contexts.
4. (good idea) Knowledge of learners: Knowledge of all aspects of intellectual, social and emotional development of all students regardless of cultural, social, ethnic background.
5. (good idea) Curricular knowledge: Knowledge of development and implementation of programs and materials.
6. Pedagogical Content knowledge: The way of representing and formulating subject matter knowledge that makes it comprehensible to others (i.e., knowledge of how to transform and represent subject matter so that it is comprehensible to students or others).
Website with Lesson Study resources: http://lessonresearch.net/index.html.
In Lesson Study teachers:
- Think about the long-term goals of education - such as love of learning and respect for others;
- Carefully consider the goals of a particular subject area, unit or lesson (for example, why science is taught, what is important about levers, how to introduce levers);
- Plan classroom "research lessons" that bring to life both specific subject matter goals and long term goals for students; and
- Carefully study how students respond to these lessons - including their learning, engagement, and treatment of each other.

This calls for a round of thank you go to the people (ETD) who made this possible:
· ANG Lay Guan for the excellent animation work, tirelessly translating the storyboard into its current amazing form.
· TAN Lay Tju for cool video editing and 3D transition effects, recommend file format ‘*.mov’ for actual day as well as a backup ‘*.wmv’ in a CD with me.
· Lee Chin Hiong Vincent for the 2 amazing audio effects and good suggestion(s) to improve animation.
· Sharon GOH for coordinating the animation production.
· YAP Heong Meng for coordinating the audio and video production slots.
· WEE Loo Kang for overall concept and service to AST and CPDD’s needs in the animation production.
· DDTDL CHAN Lai Peng & ADTDL NIAM Hwee Peng for endorsing and putting a strong team of talented people to be involved in the animation production.
Great Work everyone!
