Pre-semester Workshop 1 (Session 1) – Mixed-mode presentation

Title:Experience Sharing of Online Teaching, Mixed-mode Teaching & Alternative Assessment (Showcase of Teaching Award Winners 2020)
Facilitator(s): Dr Archimedes GUERRA (MKT)
CHTL Colleagues
Date & Time: 10 August 2020 (Mon), 3:00 p.m. – 4:15 p.m.
Venue: via ZOOM
Abstract: With many uncertainties ahead of us, some students may or may not be able to come back to the campus to attend classes. A mixed mode of face-to-face and online teaching may become predominant in the new academic year. We are delighted to have invited our Teaching Award Winners 2020 to showcase their recent experience of preparing and conducting ‘mixed mode teaching’ (i.e. some students attend the class in person together with some attending online) with the use of ZOOM to engage students in interactive activities and to assess student learning performance.

In addition, colleagues from the Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning (CHTL) will introduce you a joint project between HKBU and EduHK under an initiative of the “Academic Study Institute” (ASI) for the promotion of alternative assessment(s) when teaching online.

In this session, you will be inspired with some practical tips on conducting ‘mixed-mode teaching’ with ZOOM and the good use of alternative assessment(s) to facilitate your online teaching and assessment in the days ahead.
