The Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL), Human Resources Office (HRO) and Office of Provost and Vice-President (Academic and Research) (PV/VPARO) jointly organised the Induction Programme for New Academic Staff 2022 with a series of workshops and seminars on 16 and 17 August 2022, helping new teachers gain a better understanding of teaching and learning at HSUHK.
The morning session of the first day’s Induction Programme started with welcoming remarks and getting to know each other. Each of the five School Deans and the Director of Student Affairs welcomed the new academic staff to the HSUHK family by introducing them one by one to the audience. The President, Professor Simon S M Ho, gave a sharing on the latest developments of HSUHK. Then, Professor Hon S Chan, Vice-President (Learning and Student Experience), Professor Y V Hui, Provost and Vice-President (Academic and Research), and Dr Tom Fong, Vice-President (Organisational Development), highlighted in their sharing the effective teaching and learning practices and diverse student experience at our University, funding and supports for teaching and research, performance assessment, graduate attributes “iGPS”, and campus wellness.
In the afternoon session, Dr Holly Chung, Associate Director (Teaching and Learning Enhancement) of CTL, hosted a workshop on “Outcome-based Teaching and Learning (OBTL) and Criterion-Referenced Assessment”. In the next workshop “Teaching and Learning with Emerging Technologies”, Dr Eugene Wong, Director of the Virtual Reality Centre, and Dr George Ho, Associate Director (E-Learning) of CTL, introduced useful online tools and CTL’s support for teaching and learning with e-learning tools and virtual reality to the participants.
On the second day of the Induction Programme, new academic staff were invited to the HSUHK Teaching Excellence Awards (2020/21) Sharing Seminar Series for an opportunity to exchange valuable experience in good practice of teaching and learning. A seminar on “Learning Programme Accreditation and Quality Assurance” presented by Dr Brossa Wong, Registrar, and Ms Mandy Leung, Assistant Manager of Registry, drew the two-day Programme to a close.
