Innovation Activities

Find out about learning innovations through iN.LAB programmes which are designed to empower training and adult education professionals to take learning beyond traditional face-to-face classroom delivery, and maximise the application of learning back in the actual workplace.
iN.LAB programmes bring together different stakeholders to Explore, Collaborate and Innovate. Our signature programmes comprises two idea and prototype competitive innovation grant initiatives - InnovPLUS and InnovJAM; two knowledge awareness platforms - InnovLOGUE and InnovBITE and a capability development initiative - InnovDEV.


The InnovPLUS Grant is a competitive learning innovation grant challenge which awards a prototyping grant of up to $200,000 to winning organisations to develop an innovative, feasible and scalable prototype that advances CET practice and outcomes. The InnovPLUS is organised by iN.LAB of the Institute for Adult Learning (IAL), and is run twice a year.

A form of peer or informal learning, InnovBITE is a quick 1 to 2 hour sharing session by acknowledged experts from the CET community. Topics covered are wide-ranging: from success stories, tips and tricks that work to insider know-hows. For past highlights, please click here.
iN.LAB curates educational technology (edtech) tools that are cost-effective, to help reduce costs in implementing blended learning, and easy to use in classroom, online and workplace learning. These tools would also help kickstart adoption of innovative blended learning & facilitation practices. We call them CEE (short for Cost-effective and Easy-to-use) tools.

InnovDEV was recently launched in August 2020, alongside the Training Adult Education (TAE) Industry Digital Plan (IDP). It supports local training providers and enterprises with learning and development units in their efforts to go digital, by building their capabilities in blended learning design and course delivery.
