Q: What is i-to-i Chalkboard? A: It's the online community of TEFL specialists
I am currently appointed as a Director on the Board of Shi Da Educational Services Pte Ltd (Singapore) and also an appointed member of the Academic Advisory Board of 中国福建星亮（国际）教育.
I was holding the appointment of the Head of Instructional Development (ID) Section of the Engineers Training Institute (ETI) of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF). My primary portfolio then includes instructors’ development and instructional technologies development. I was responsible for sourcing courses that enhanced the instructional capabilities of the Institute’s instructors and implementing technological tools to enhance the learning effectiveness and experience of the students passing through the Institute’s programme prior to becoming the next generation of commanders in the SAF. I like to describe my role using the following example, “If Institute’s instructors are the knife that cuts, I am the sharpener that sharpens this knife”.
I had held several command, staff and instructional appointments during my 12 years with the SAF, holding appointments such as Officer-in-Command of a Mechanised Equipment Company, Staff Officer of Curriculum & Leadership Development and also as a Company Trainer training NSmen prior to the appointment as Hd ID Section. As part of my military training, I had attended the Intelligence Officer Course, Company Tactics Course, Engineer Officer Advanced Course and the Unit Logistics Course. For my instructional development portfolio and advancement, I had attended and completed courses covering Learning Science, Instructional Design, Educational Psychology, Coaching & Facilitation, New Media in Teaching Pedagogy, Scenario-Based Learning, Modeling & Simulation and Communication for Teaching & Learning, just to name a few.
As a Commissioned Officer, I had the opportunity to participate in some of the larger-scale events that the SAF was organising. One of the most fulfilling events was the Singapore’s National Day Parade (NDP) in 2007 where I contributed my effort as a Marketing Director and also the Sponsorship Mileage Realisation Manager of the Sponsorship Committee. As a marketing director, I was placed in charge of soliciting for sponsorship from 50 over companies. As the mileage realization manager, I had to realise the sponsorship mileage for 200 over participating sponsors. Via this project, I had the opportunity to work with sponsors from spanning from MNCs to SMEs, and across different industries such as advertising media, desktop publishing and printing, decoration, F&B, banking and finance, infrastructure and events management etc.
Armed with the experience and well accumulated reputation from NDP 2007, I was accorded the role of the Secretary to the Sponsorship, Souvenirs and Charity Committee in the Army Open House 2009 which was concluded a well success.
On a personal level, I am passionate about the subject on personal finance and is determined to gain more financial literacy to accomplish his dream of achieving financial freedom by age 45. Thereafter, I wish to contribute most of my time on my family members, community services and charity works. I am constantly sharing my learning on the subject of personal finance to members of the yahoo group, the [Federation of Financial Freedom] and also via his blog site @ www.leroyang.blogspot.com. I hosts the Robert Kiyosaki's “Cash Flow” game on a periodical basis for my friends, to share and to network on the basis of their common interests and dreams, “To achieve financial freedom”.
I am a volunteer with and a supporter of ISCOS (www.iscos.org.sg), a member of the CARE Network.
I am a keen learner and an exemplary example of my belief, “When I Stop Learning, I Stop Living”. On Academic accomplishments, I hold a Diploma in Electronics and Computer Engineering from the Ngee Ann Polytechnic (Singapore), a Specialist Diploma in Learning Science from the National Institute of Education (Singapore) and a Diploma in Financial Management from Kaplan AMPI (Singapore). I am currently on the journey with i-To-i TEFL to obtain the TEFL certification.
