Our department’s E-learning projects are tasked to explore different media platforms in assisting students’ learning as well as professional development.
Project leaders: Dr Pauline Chan and Dr Barry Lee
The project aimed to provide supervisors and student teachers the experience to use multi-media records as a kind of assessment evidence in teaching supervision. Positive feedback from academic/ teaching staff and students who participated in the project is received: (1) the multiple media evidence can facilitate post-teaching discussion and reflection; (2) the electronic supervision form can support the production of e-portfolio; (3) the culture of integrating technology into teaching is enhanced. The ECE department will expand the use of iPad in teaching supervision to other programmes.
Project leaders: Dr. Lam Bick Har, Dr. Bryant Darren.
ECE Ambassadors: Dr. Christina Han, Dr. Vivienne Leung, and Dr. Annie Hu
The Project is an inter-departmental platform that connects colleagues from six departments in pilot-testing blended learning instruction in various programmes. The University will build the capacity of academic departments for blended learning by adopting a grassroots approach towards development. Each department has several blended learning ambassadors to support colleagues in their use of technologies and pedagogies. The emphasis will be on the formation of professional learning communities, customized department-based support, and creation of a common vision and development of a prototype alternative model of professional development in higher education. Our experience of promoting pedagogical innovation at the Faculty level will be shared to encourage institutional support for teachers.
