Knowledge is updated at such an unprecedented rate in the contemporary era that developing active and effective learning capabilities has become essential to both academic studies and professional development. This presents challenges to the traditional education model that focuses mainly on disseminating knowledge.
Research-led Learning, an innovative education method advocated by XJTLU, is an exploration of the active learning process. The model leads students to start with a specific problem or phenomenon and take the initiative to search, integrate and analyse relative sources and data, and eventually, propose possible explanations or solutions.
The Student Symposium of Research-led Learning (SSRL) is an updated version of the XJTLU Student Competition of Research-led Learning. With this new version, we hope to help more students better understand the concept of research-led learning and use it in their curricular and extra-curricular learning.
