Education is the process of facilitating learning, or the acquisition of knowledge, skills, values, beliefs, and habits. With the changing economic and social landscapes and the advent of technology, especially the way students access information, conventional education is facing many challenges. In this talk, the speaker shared his understanding about teaching/learning and some personal experience, with respect to three key components for school education, i.e. subject matter, methods, and administration. Some issues faced by university education has also been discussed.
