Session 2

Title: OBTL and Teaching & Learning @ HKBU
Facilitators: Dr Stella LAI (GEO) and Dr Lisa LAW (CHTL)
Abstract: With the full adoption of Outcomes-based Teaching and Learning (OBTL), teaching and learning at HKBU emphasises the creation of a more learning-centered environment and the provision of timely feedback in motivating students to study at a high standard. Hence the use of engaging teaching and learning activities (TLAs) coupled with appropriate formative and summative assessment methods (AMs) constructively aligned to the learning outcomes is the underlying principle of OBTL.
This session primarily aims to (1) explain the teaching and learning culture of HKBU and the implementation process of OBTL, (2) introduce various pedagogical, assessment methods and the new General Education (GE) structure.
Date & Time: 22 Aug 2018 (Wed), 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Venue: ACC209

Session 3

Title: Assessment @ HKBU
Facilitators: Dr Eva WONG (CHTL) and Professor Ricky WONG (AR)
Abstract: Empirical studies informed us that “assessment drives student learning”. One perquisite for an effective assessment lies in the formulation of valid, reliable and fair criteria to evaluate student work. Under the framework of University’s Assessment Policy, this session primarily aims to introduce the approach Criterion-Referenced Assessment (CRA) to our new colleagues, through explaining the importance of CRA in OBTL, guiding the design of assessment rubrics, and demonstrating the use of rubrics to grade student work.
Date & Time: 23 Aug 2018 (Thu), 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Venue: ACC209
