Since its inception, the HSUHK Teaching Excellence Awards honour distinguished teachers who have demonstrated outstanding teaching performance and contribution to teaching. To recognise their achievement and promote scholarship of teaching and learning, the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) cordially invites the seven HSUHK Teaching Excellence Awards Recipients in the academic year 2021/22 to speak at a series of sharing seminars to be held from February to April 2023.
The first seminar “Cultivating Motivation: Strategies to Foster Student Learning” was held on 2 February 2023, co-facilitated by Dr Winnie Chan, Lecturer from the Department of Marketing, Dr Baldwin Wong, Former Assistant Professor from the Department of Social Science, and Mr Justin Yum, Part-time Lecturer from the Department of Computing.
Professor Yer Van Hui, Provost and Vice-President (Academic and Research), kicked off the seminar series with an expression of gratitude to the seven awardees for their concerted effort, excellence and enthusiasm in teaching within the HSUHK community, in addition to their care and love towards HSUHK students throughout their teaching journeys.
The three award recipients shared their exemplary practices of fostering learning motivation. Dr Winnie Chan shared how a good mentor teacher could inspire students to learn, while Dr Baldwin Wong showcased how TV drama and animation could arouse student learning interest. The discussion was followed by Mr Justin Yum, who talked about the achievement of positive academic outcomes through the building of rapport and trust among teacher-student and mentor-mentee relationships.
