    BALSE Memory Book 2022

    This book is a graduation present (at least a belated one) from us, the editors and the department to you.
    We all know OUR programme is ending, but it does not mean we must say farewell in tears. This book is our more fun way of recording the growth and progress that we have all been through together. In this book, you will find your stories re-imagined in the different chapters. We follow BA(LSE) as if it was a person on an adventure to the end.
    Feel free to go through the book by skipping to the chapter you like. Or you could start from the beginning, where you will experience the memories of the programme from the beginning to the end.
    We hope you enjoy this memory book!

    Congratulations to Mr Cheung Chun Mo and Mr Tang Ho Yin Gary for winning Outstanding Prospective Teachers Award

    BA(LSE) alumnus Mr Cheung Chun Mo Wins Outstanding Prospective Teachers Award
    BA(LSE) alumnus Mr Cheung Chun Mo, current student of the Postgraduate Diploma in Education (Primary) at The Education University of Hong Kong, was presented with the Gold Award in the 8th Outstanding Prospective Teachers Election. Mr Cheung hopes to become a primary school teacher who teaches Mathematics and General Studies in the future.

    BEd(BAFS) Final Year Student Mr Tang Ho Yin Gary Wins Outstanding Prospective Teachers Award
    It is glad to be given a gold award in the eighth Hong Kong Outstanding Prospective Teachers Award. During the preparation, I applied problem-based learning and e-learning in my teaching plan. On the presentation day, I had to do a teaching demonstration and be interviewed by the judges. The interview section was meaningful as the questions reminded me to think about what is teaching. I also shared the importance of financial education on the prize presentation day. Those experiences are a cornerstone for me to be a BAFS teacher. I believe that life inspires life and I will keep improving my teaching ability in the future. Once again, thank you for Dr. Vincent Cheng's, my FE supervisor, nomination in this Teachers Award.

    Congratulations to the BAFS team which won the Bronze Award of the Personal Finance Ambassador Programme 2019/20!

    Five BEd(BAFS) students (Chu Hoi Ting; Chu Lai Hang; Ng Hok Yu; Ng Kei Ying; Yung Sing Yu) formed a team and were shortlisted and trained as Personal Finance Ambassadors on the Personal Finance Ambassador Programme 2019/20. Participants were required to develop their financial education projects under the theme “e-Payment” to strengthen students’ knowledge of electronic payment and personal finance. They were also required to deliver their team project and promote financial education messages to students at the University. Despite the disruptions since November 2019 and the many difficulties for the team to carry out programme activities on campus, our BAFS team managed to put their activities online through video and mini-games, providing useful hints and questionnaires on personal finance. The project was successfully implemented by inviting students to reflect on their spending habits and to practise balance between saving and E-payment spending. 

    The Personal Finance Ambassador Programme 2019/20 was co-organised by HKEX Foundation Limited, Investor and Financial Education Council, and St. James’ Settlement. There were more than thirty participating teams from local tertiary institutions.

    GLEF : Australian Financial Market Tour

    A group of 11 students from different majors of undergraduate programs joined our Global Learning Enhancement Fund (GLFE) project and flied over to Australia, a fantastic nation in the Southern Hemisphere, straight after the final term examination!!! The tour was not for sightseeing and leisure but also education purposes. Students were expected to have dialogue with the representatives of those organizations being visited to acquire wider and deeper understanding of the Australian financial market in Sydney. We met bank officials, accountant, lawyer, professors and Australian students and had the opportunities to interact with them during the talks and visits. Our students had done a great job as they were all disciplined and responsible with respect to educational visits, sightseeing and private social functions indeed. Students and I really enjoyed this trip and they told me that although it was only a 8-days tour (2nd – 9th, June, 2019), their horizon is greatly widen as they experienced Australian culture during the whole visit. I do look forward to organizing such kind of meaningful educational trip in the near future as a business educator myself.
