Lee Wee Chee

Director, Learning and Professional Development, Institute for Adult Learning

Since studying with us in 2012, Master of Training and Development (MTD) graduate, Mr Lee Wee Chee has progressed from Principal Learning Designer to Director, Learning and Professional Development at the Institute for Adult Learning, Singapore. Lee attributes much of his professional development to learning from the MTD program. ‘I have been an educator all my life,’ he said. ‘When I started out as an adult educator, I realised my understanding of adult learning was not deep enough. This limited the ways I could help facilitate learning. When I realised MTD offered this opportunity to study the different facets of adult learning, I jumped at the opportunity.’
