(from Tomorrow's Professor blog post #1575)























Declan Ee, co-founder of Singapore online furniture store Castlery, said that while tech and e-commerce are key to meeting the needs of today's digitised consumer market, the opening of Apple's flagship store in the region shows that an online presence can never fully replace the value of human interaction.

"While an online presence is important for product and brand discovery, a physical experience centre is essential to create a holistic customer interaction with the brand. Apple's flagship store will provide consumers with a new immersive experiential touch point with the brand, otherwise inaccessible online."

Apple likens its store to a modern-day town square - a place to shop, learn, connect and be inspired"










































Washington Post, Breaking News, Is Also Breaking New Ground

















"The brain beats the internet when it comes to context and speed, but the internet clobbers the brain when it comes to volume. You can find any fact on the internet, even alternative ones. Your brain, in contrast, is limited, so how should we choose what to learn?
Students should learn the information for which the internet is a poor substitute. Getting information from the internet takes time, so they should memorize facts that are needed fast and frequently."



"In the beginning, the Internet was a place to which we went; now it is a space where we are ... Yet the Internet has more netizens than any country has citizens ...

Identity becomes an amalgamation of social preferences expressed through traditional categories such as religion and ethnicity as well as newer communities built around professions, experiences, and causes ...

Connectivity brings individuals the choice to belong to other places than those they do or to have loyalty to multiple places at the same time ... The phrase "your network is your net worth" applies very much to individuals and nations both."









"To this end, we are faced with a challenge: balancing the need for adequate data privacy, security and protection with the economic and social needs to drive growth and innovation through data. While customers are rightfully mindful of their privacy, they also see value in more personalised services and applications. Almost eight out of 10 Asians want apps to be tailored to their specific needs and 70 per cent are willing to share personal data for tailoring."

Medical Education Peer Reviewed Publications (selected)

The intention of writing a recent series of reflection pieces (article 5, 6, 7, 9 and 11), as well the other articles below, was to set down in print as many of the useful ideas / and pointers I could think of, and which I have found useful and currently use, on the subject of TeL and implementing this, distilled from my reading, practice, and scholarly inquiry since 2002, as well as from the last 6 years of faculty development presentations, symposia and workshops I have been involved in designing and have participated in at NUS, at APMEC and AMEE; and have presented as invited speaker to conferences in Colombo, Sri Lanka; Kaohsiung, Taiwan; Jakarta, Indonesia; and as visiting professor in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
