Improving Students’ Sense of Agency from a Psychological Point of View

LTTC Seminar on UGC Teaching Awardees’ Sharing (2): Improving Students' Sense of Agency from a Psychological Point of View

You are cordially invited to attend the upcoming Seminar on UGC Teaching Awardees’ Sharing (2) organised by the Centre for Learning, Teaching and Technology (LTTC).

Topic: Improving Students’ Sense of Agency from a Psychological Point of View

Speaker: Professor Suzanne Ho-wai So, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

(Awardee of the 2017 University Grants Committee Teaching Award (Early Career Faculty Members))

Abstract:

Experiential learning and reflective practice have become buzzwords of academia, but do they really work and why? Rather than the one-way delivery of knowledge, how can we cultivate an environment for learning to take place? As a clinical psychologist turned academic, Professor So has found understanding and managing people’s behavior a key aspect of her career. Over the last five years at the CUHK, Professor So has formulated ways to engage psychology students in effective teaching and learning. She is determined to put students in the center stage of their learning and has experimented novel and systematic pedagogical approaches such as the ‘self-practice/self-reflection’ (SP/SR) and improv games. This keynote address will integrate what psychological research has informed us about how we learn with practical applications for learners across disciplines.
