Teaching for Student Engagement:High-Impact Pedagogy in US Liberal Arts Education


The speaker will discuss some of the trends that currently animate the evolution of teaching practices in liberal arts colleges in the US. These include efforts to rethink the relationship between learning in and outside of the classroom, the use of technology in teaching, service-learning, learning-by-research, and integrating the curriculum with co-curricular learning and vocational discernment. He will reflect on how his experiences as a teacher in both Hong Kong and the US have influenced his engagement in these practices.
