Teaching and research at the University are supported by a number of academic services/centres.
Centre for Language in Education
The Centre for Language in Education (CLE) aims to become excellent in language education (Chinese, English and Putonghua) by nurturing students’ biliterate and trilingual skills. This is achieved through exemplary curriculum design and assessment practices, innovative co-curricular/extra-curricular learning activities, and professional sharing of good practices at local and international levels.
The mission of CLE is to enhance students’ biliteracy and trilingualism in their pursuit of academic and professional excellence. To achieve this, we 
  • design exemplary language programmes to cater for the needs of local, mainland and international students;
  • adopt assessment practices that optimise learning;
  • collaborate in inter-institutional projects with local and international scholars to promote good practices in language education; and
  • complement classroom learning with innovative in-class/out-of-class language activities and self-access language resources.

Centre for Learning, Teaching and Technology (LTTC)
The Centre is an academic and professional supporting unit at the University. It aims to enhance student learning outcomes by applying information technology to support the development of e-Learning and digital competency, innovation of learning and teaching, and the improvement and innovation of assessment at the University.
The Centre provides a range of services for staff and students, including:
1. Staff Professional Development (SPD) Programme
LTTC has developed the Staff SPD Programme for all academic/teaching staff of the University. In partnership with individual academics, academic departments and Teaching Development Grant project teams, LTTC has been organising series of SPD activities to prepare new academic/teaching staff for teaching and to enhance staff capacity to advance student learning. LTTC also provides support for the Peer Support of Teaching Scheme, which promotes peer dialogue on teaching and sharing good teaching practices.
2. e-Learning and Digital Competency Development, and ePortfolio Workshops
LTTC offers a variety of workshops on e-Learning and digital competency development, and ePortfolio building for students. The Centre also co-organises workshops with faculties and departments on the use of e-Learning tools and related pedagogical strategies in support of the University’s implementation of e-Learning and Digital Competency Strategy. Additionally, the Centre conducts workshops on the use of innovative technology in education, including topics such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) literacy, the metaverse, STEM/STEAM education, 3D printing, coding, robotics education. To provide a quality and creative learning environment, the laboratories are well-equipped with high-performance computers, various mobile digital devices, and 3D printers. All staff and students are welcome to participate by registering for these workshops through the LTTC website.
3. User Guides in e-Learning and ePortfolio Platforms
LTTC has developed various online user guides for Moodle, Sway and Google Sites to support staff and students. Staff and students are welcome to get the related self-learning materials from the LTTC website.
4. Generic Intended Learning Outcomes (GILOs)
LTTC administers a self-assessment questionnaire for measuring students’ self-perceived achievement of GILOs. Students will receive an individual report which helps them to write reflection and set learning goals through ePortfolios. LTTC also provides insights for students and staff to connect GILOs to their learning and teaching.
5. Video-based Learning Community (VBLC)
LTTC aims at developing a user-friendly web-based platform for one-stop-service of managing, editing, and sharing videos in supporting learning and teaching. Members of VBLC are able to review, comment, or reflect upon the shared videos, thereby contributing to the co-construction of knowledge in teaching practice and/or some other teaching and learning activities such as field experience marking standardisation.
6. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)
LTTC employs the Open edX platform to facilitate the MOOC development in the University. LTTC also cooperates with faculties and departments to develop university-wide MOOC/mini-MOOC projects to enhance the capability and experience of academic and teaching staff of MOOC development and further encourage blended learning for students’ reflective engagement.
7. Video Production Room for Staff
To cultivate an innovative and interactive e-Learning-rich environment in the University, a Video Production Room has been launched since October 2018. Staff can produce video resources for daily presentation, and innovative e-Learning activities in an efficient and self-served flexible video production environment.

General Education Office
The Education University of Hong Kong offers General Education (GE) to strengthen students’ knowledge bases, to broaden their intellectual horizons, to introduce them to modes of thinking and knowing in a number of disciplinary and cross-disciplinary areas, to equip them with higher order thinking skills, and to expose them to authentic learning experiences beyond classrooms.
General Education Foundation Course (GEFC), which runs from Semester 1 to Semester 2, bears 4 credit-points (cps) and is offered to all first-year students in order to equip them with the diverse knowledge-bases and skills for their intellectual and professional developments in local, national and global contexts, through lectures and tutorials covering a wide variety of themes/issues related to humanities, science and social sciences.
The GE Breadth Courses (GEBCs) bear 9 cps and are composed of the GE Breadth Learning Strands that cover humanities, science and social sciences, Positive and Values Education Course and GE Interdisciplinary Course. These courses aim to broaden students’ intellectual terrains and strengthen their knowledge bases with themes and issues that transcend disciplinary boundaries and embody multiple perspectives. Students have to take one from each component in order to fulfil the 9-cp requirements for GEBCs.
Undergraduate students can take Experiential Learning (EL) that is made up of a 3-cp Co-curricular and Service Learning Course and a 3-cp Experiential Learning Course. The former engages students to learn through direct services in real-life and/or work-place context(s), whereas the latter encourages students to learn, reflect and conceptualise through and in practice (experimentation).
Students take a University ePortfolio (UePortfolio) Course to be their 3-cp “capstone” course in the study semester assigned by individual programmes. They are required to complete the construction of their University ePortfolios that are made up of the artefacts and evidence derived from a wide range of learning experiences (e.g. Field Experience/Internship, GE, Majors, Minors, Electives, Exchange Programme, etc.). This course enables students to synthesise their learning experiences by reflecting critically on the value and significance of what they have learned, re-conceptualising their learning experiences, making connections to their lives, and imagining their own futures.
For detailed information about GE courses, please contact General Education Office at ge@eduhk.hk or 2948 8799.

Global Affairs Office
Serving as an international relations arm of the University, the Global Affairs Office (GAO) has its major responsibilities of development of international collaboration with strategic partners worldwide; promotion of the University internationally; organising a variety of rewarding non-local experiential learning activities; and promotion of student and cultural integration.
Involving over 100 partner universities and institutions worldwide, our Student Exchange Programmes, which intends to cultivate students’ global perspectives and facilitate personal development, can be a life transforming learning experience for the students. Other varieties of short-term study programmes such as cultural visits, summer programmes at partner universities and Learning Putonghua@Home with EdUHK are made available to enrich students’ learning out of Hong Kong beyond their formal curriculum.
Our inbound exchange programme, International Teacher Training Programme and short-term programmes bring overseas students to our campus and create a vibrant and multi-cultural learning environment. GAO works closely with other units of the University to provide better campus support to the non-local students and sees integration among local and non-local students as integral to the advancement of internationalisation.

Hong Kong Museum of Education
Established in May 2009, the Hong Kong Museum of Education is the leading museum in the region to specialise in the preservation, research, interpretation and communication of the history of education in Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong Museum of Education acquires, conserves, preserves, researches and exhibits materials which relate to the history, culture and development of education in Hong Kong. The Museum has a role as a public institution to engage the community to source historical materials and build up resources to promote life-long learning through collaborative projects, partnership schemes, exhibition displays and interactive and educational activities. It also has an institutional role to serve as a locus for research and related scholarly activity pertaining to Hong Kong’s educational heritage for the teaching and educational research community of Hong Kong, the region and overseas.
The Museum currently houses and displays a wide collection of education related items and artefacts of historical value which were donated from individuals and organisations, including alumni of our predecessor Colleges of Education, alumni associations, or on-loan items from schools and other local museums. These items and artefacts include plaques, trophies, certificates, uniforms, teaching tools, textbooks, old photographs, historical documents, totalling more than 25,000 items.
The Museum is currently staging  an exhibition titled “Beyond the Classroom: Extra-Curricular Activities”. Jointly organised by the Hong Kong Museum of Education and the Hong Kong Extra-curricular Activities Masters’ Association, this exhibition delves into the development and evolution of extra-curricular activities in Hong Kong over the last century. Sharing moments and achievements from school days, the exhibition offers a glimpse into students’ lives at different points in history. It seeks to foster intergenerational understanding and inspire viewers to reflect on the importance of extra-curricular activities to education, then, now and in the future.
In July 2022, the Museum launched a book titled Education under the Trees: The Story of Hong Kong Schools in the New Territories and Outlying Islands, the fifth book of the Hong Kong Education Stories Book Series. This book traces the origin of these schools and the development of education in the New Territories and outlying islands. The book also demonstrates how the village schools in the area interacted with the social culture of the wider community. Drawing from personal interviews, it chronicles the memories and anecdotes of teachers and alumni, portraying what it was like to come of age in the countryside.
In the past, the Museum also collaborated with other institutions and University  units in projects such as “St. Paul’s College 170th Anniversary Heritage Exhibition”, “EdUHK Time Capsule Exhibition”, “Re-encountering Confucius”, “Children’s Songs and Paintings Contests”, “Six Arts and Five Constant Virtues Carnival” and initiated projects such as “Six Arts Game Design Contest” to further engage the local school community and reach out to the public.
With the introduction of a "Friends of the Hong Kong Museum of Education (HKME Friends)" programme in 2014, the Museum seeks to recruit members who are united by a passion for preserving the rich educational heritage of Hong Kong and supporting the Museum's mission and development. Through a vibrant calendar of events, talks, classes, exclusive tours and gatherings, the programme delivers meaningful and enjoyable experiences for our members.
The Museum will continue to play a leading role in exhibiting aspects of Hong Kong's educational history to the public, and seek ways to integrate more fully into the teaching, learning and research activities at the University.
