The SEC Internationalisation Committee organised the 2nd international dialogue and public research seminar; around 20 colleagues attended the virtual event on 28 April 2021.
Professor Umesh Sharma, Associate Dean for Equity and Inclusion from Monash University, Australia delivered his talk on “Inclusive Education: How to Bridge Gaps between Theory and Practice in Teacher Education”. The presentation was followed by the Q&A and individual consultation sessions. Colleagues were enthusiastic and actively engaged in an exchange of knowledge and ideas with the guest speaker. It is hoped that we can utilise this platform to develop research partnerships between universities in HK and Australia. Together, we can work with schools in preparing teachers to provide high-quality education for all students with special educational needs.
The next seminar will be held in the summer term – stay tuned for more details!
