The SIT campus is specially designed for digital connectedness and will be a testbed for cutting-edge technologies like Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) to enhance learning in and outside the classroom. Internet of Things (IoT), for example, can gather data that allows SIT to gain deeper insights into campus operations as well as its community of students and staff.

Learning can be energising, even delightful, with contributions and participation from outside the university.  Visitors can become a part of the university’s vibrant learning environment as content curators, event organisers, etc.

Challenge Statements

  • How might we support different forms of learning in and outside the classroom? 

  • How might visitors utilise spaces and services within the SIT campus and contribute to the learning environment for all?

PDD will be a “University Workplace” that blurs the boundaries between learning and working. To enable coworking and encourage a cross-pollination of ideas, innovation spaces such as industry joint labs and maker-spaces will be accessible to the SIT community and businesses in the District. Also, the interconnectivity between the academic and commercial buildings will allow for serendipitous encounters and more interactions. 

Drawing on the District’s unique demographic mix - students, educators, entrepreneurs, technologists, and young working professionals - we have the opportunity to create a knowledge capital in the northeast region of the island.

Challenge Statements

  • How might we create opportunities for SIT students to apply their learning and experiment with adjacent businesses, and thus participate more actively in the new digital economy?

  • How might we design new ways for people to exchange knowledge and expertise?

Workplaces in a digital economy in the near future could look different from the workplaces of today. For one thing, the new way of working is not confined in the office cubicles. Increasingly, Singaporeans are exploring and adopting remote work and flexible arrangements, such as freelancing, job sharing, etc.

Compared to other estates, Punggol residents tend to be working professionals with young children. They have a lot of demands on their time and energy, as they juggle between work and family life.

Challenge Statements

  • How might we promote the well-being of the PDD workforce, so they can do their everyday activities more conveniently and in ways that are healthier and more meaningful?

  • How might we support new types of work arrangements, particularly for Punggol residents in PDD?
