HKBU shares exemplary teaching and learning practices with international educators
27 May 2020
Various eLearning and digital assessment practices at HKBU were showcased in two webinars held on 21 and 28 April. Participants discussed pertinent issues concerning online education and challenges teachers have to face during the COVID-19 outbreak. More than 1,200 scholars from 20 countries and regions around the world joined the webinars.
Hosted respectively by the UK’s Advance HE and the United Board for Christian Higher Education in Asia, the two webinars were co-facilitated by colleagues from the Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning at HKBU with other eLearning experts. Together, they reflected on and discussed how to tailor a more flexible and agile curriculum to cope with a range of potential scenarios.
Since the suspension of face-to-face classes, HKBU teachers have been leveraging technological innovations to ensure the continuity and quality of students’ learning. These sharing opportunities not only allowed teachers to learn from their co-educators, but also confirmed that the University’s teaching practices are on par with the rest of the world.
