Funding Priorities

The current focus in order of funding priority includes the following:

  1. the development of new pedagogical or teaching approach(es), with special emphasis on internationalisation and service learning;
  2. the design of learning and teaching processes and evaluation mechanism that would assist in the implementation of outcomes-based learning;
  3. the monitoring of students’ learning effectiveness to enhance programme delivery;
  4. new and/or experimental approaches to syllabus design for learning and teaching enhancement;
  5. the design of student assessment framework and the use of assessment results to enhance learning and teaching;
  6. the design of courses or delivery methods in which there are new initiatives to encourage student participation in the teaching/learning process;
  7. the incorporation of educational technology into classroom, laboratory, studio, and/or fieldwork learning experiences for students;
  8. the development of other new and innovative materials for use in teaching; and
  9. other possibilities or new initiatives.

TDG must NOT be used to fund research activities. However, some measures of didactic processes and outcomes measurement based on experimental teaching may be included. Should such activities involve the use of humans (such as students) as subjects, please consult the Committee on the Use of Human and Animal Subjects in Teaching and Research (HASC) prior to the submission of application (http://gs.hkbu.edu.hk/en/research/ethics_safety/).
