Educators Who Inspire a Growth Mindset

12 outstanding faculty members who have gone above and beyond their roles as educators have received the annual SIT Teaching Excellence Award for AY2020/21. In the first of two features, 4 of them share how they have inspired SITizens to learn and grow

The annual SIT Teaching Excellence Award (TEA) serves to value the importance of teaching and to recognise exceptional faculty members for their significant contributions. This year SIT congratulated 12 recipients of the SIT TEA for AY2020/21! These educators were nominated by SITizens and selected based on their excellence in teaching, dedication to student development, as well as adoption of innovation in their teaching and assessment methods.


One of the best forms of teaching is not to merely equip students with the necessary skills, but to cultivate in them a mindset for continuous growth and lifelong learning. The first of two features shines the spotlight on TEA recipients who have instilled in their students a growth mindset – to constantly challenge themselves not only to become better professionals in their field, but better people. Read on for the insights from Associate Professor Steven Tay (Engineering), Associate Professor Karina Dancza (Health & Social Sciences), Assistant Professor Yeh I-Ling (Health & Social Sciences) and Senior Professional Officer Joshua Chan.
