Welcome to HSSE Online!
Current Issue: Volume 4, Issue 1 2015

In this special geography issue of HSSE Online, we acknowledge geography teachers’ role in geographical education by inviting classroom practitioners to share their reflections on issues in geography education research. As noted by former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew in 1959, “It is no exaggeration to say that the 10,600 teachers in all our schools constitute the most influential group of 10,600 people anywhere in Singapore” (cited by Mr Heng Swee Keat, Minister for Education, at the MOE Promotion and Appointment Ceremony, 2015). What teachers do in their classrooms has profound implications for students’ learning and development.

An Inspiring Quote

"[Open-mindedness] includes an active desire to listen to more sides than one; to give heed to facts from whatever source they come; to give full attention to alternative possibilities; to recognize the possibility of error even in the beliefs that are dearest to us."
