CS2400 - Foundation of Information Analytics

Lee Chu Keong

CS2400_Lee Chu Keong_pix.jpg


In 1997 (while I was still teaching at Singapore Polytechnic), I decided to pursue my masters at Nanyang Technological University. I took a long time, but finally graduated in 2000 with a Master of Science (Information Studies). Right after graduating, I started teaching at NTU, and there, I was inspired to do my doctoral studies. Professors Schubert Foo and Suliman Hawamdeh were my doctoral supervisors. They pretty much left me to chart my on course, to find my own area, and to do my own thing. I graduated with a PhD in 2008.  Sometimes, life comes a full circle.  In 2016, I became the programme director for the Master of Science (Information Studies), the very programme I studied some twenty years before. One of the things many potential applicants to the MSc (Information Studies) programme ask me is this: What can I do after completing the programme? I've never said it, but certainly, one possibility is to become its programme director some day.

Today (approximately 28 years after I taught my first class, gasp!), I teach at the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI), in Nanyang Technological University.  For fifteen years, I taught in two postgraduate programmes, namely, the Master of Science (Information Studies) and Master of Science (Knowledge Management).  In 2015, I taught the undergraduates for the very first time (Foundations of Information Analytics (CS2400), in the Information Analytics track).  In 2016, the powers that be at WKWSCI made the Information Analytics module a core module (so CS2400 does not belong to any track any more).  I guess I’ll be teaching this module for some time to come.

I am currently the programme director for the Master of Science (Knowledge Management) programme, and for a brief period (about 2 years), I was also the programme director of the Master of Science (Information Studies) programme.  I have diverse interest, and I have taught various modules in both the MSc (Knowledge Management) and MSc (Information Studies) programmes — Music and Art Sources and Services; Science and Technology Sources and Services; Management and Business Sources and Services; Sources and Searching; Foundations of Knowledge Management; and Information and Knowledge Assets.

From 1st July 2018, I took on the role of Associate Chair (Students).

Whatever role, appointment, position, or responsibility I take on, at the end of the day, I am still a teacher, and teaching is something I enjoy doing very much. Perhaps because of this, I’ve been told that I’m a “natural” and “authentic” teacher.  I am humbled that I won the Nanyang Education Award (School Level) in March 2015, mostly by having fun.  I’m really blessed because I’m doing what I love, and I'm being paid for doing it.
