Professor Cheung added that the University is organising a series of celebratory events and activities for its 25th anniversary. “As a young and thriving University that focuses primarily on teacher education, EdUHK has excelled in knowledge creation, dissemination and application, through many innovative education research projects over the decades,” he said.
