|Title||Showcasing the Smart Classroom at HKBU (same as the ones on 21 & 28 Dec 2020)|
|Abstract||With the advancements in technology today, conducting teaching in a Smart Classroom that fully equipped with high-end digital technology, learning devices, special software products with high quality of visual and audio systems is particularly useful, especially for conducting online and mixed-mode teaching and learning these days.
With the concerted effort of colleagues from the Office of Information Technology (ITO) and Estates Office (EO), a traditional classroom has been converted into a Smart Classroom. As a sample model for our future classroom at the University, this Smart Classroom has been in operation as a pilot for facilitating effective teaching and learning in this fast moving digital world.
In this workshop, colleagues from ITO will showcase how the different features available in this Smart Classroom can enhance teaching to make learning more interesting and enjoyable. Participants will have the opportunity to experience this well-equipped Smart Classroom with fun.

|Abstract||Teaching in times of disruption can be a big challenge for many educators/teachers, especially re-thinking/re-designing the traditional ways of assessing student learning performance. In this sharing, four teachers with different disciplinary backgrounds from Hong Kong Baptist University and The Education University of Hong Kong will share their experience on how to re-think/re-design formative and summative assessment methods with quality feedback to assess student learning with the support of digital technology. By the end of this sharing session, colleagues will be able to take away some thoughts of re-thinking/re-designing assessment methods with etools for future reference.|

|Facilitator(s)||Ir. Dr. Alfred TAN
Head, Knowledge Transfer Office
Dr. Y.M. WONG
Senior Lecturer, Department of Management
Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Centre, School of Business
Dr. TAN and Dr. WONG co-taught the GE Capstone experiential learning course “GCAP3077 Entrepreneurial and Innovative Solutions to Social Problems” in Semester 1, AY2020-21. The course aimed at facilitating students’ learning by developing their innovative and entrepreneurial mindset based on a design-thinking and experiential learning pedagogy.
Through various kinds of experiential learning activities, students of the course collectively applied their interdisciplinary skills and knowledge to identify the key problems in our society, and formed teams to develop entrepreneurial and innovative solutions to selected social problems. Students also engaged in activities like pitching, presentations and demos of proposed solutions in front of a panel of different stakeholders, so as to gain support and gather resources for the implementation and execution of their proposed solutions.
In this sharing, Dr. TAN and Dr. WONG will share (i) how the combination of different assessment methods of the course measured the learning outcomes of students; (ii) how such assessment methods helped achieve the aims of the course and the overarching goals of GE Capstone to bring positive impact to our community; and (iii) the challenges they faced in the process of assessing students’ achievement and how they tackled them.

|Title||Sharing on Research Supervision for RPg Students – Good Practices|
|Facilitator(s)||Professor Christy CHEUNG (BUS)
Dr Celine SONG (COMM)
Professor Ken YUNG (GS/BIOL)
|Abstract||To most research postgraduate (RPg) students, the few years of research studies and independent learning experience in the University is of vital importance to their future and career. To this end, HKBU endeavours to assure that our RPg students receive the best student experience and research supervision.
In this workshop, we have invited three experienced academic supervisors and winners of the President’s Award for Outstanding Performance in Research Supervision, to share their good practices of supervising postgraduate researchers. Apart from going through the regulation of supervising RPg students, our facilitators will talk through the ways they adopted different strategies to personalise their coaching approaches to individual students. Also, they will elaborate on how they guide their students at different stages, from proposal writing to career planning after project completion, to make the most out of their research projects, and attain high-achieving learning goals.

|Title||CHTL x CISL workshop series – Translation Bonds: From a Course to a Company|
|Facilitator(s)||Dr. Janice Pan Associate Professor, Department of Translation, Interpreting and Intercultural Studies
Students from the editorial teams of TransFeed
|Abstract||Translation used to give people a static image that it is all about transferring meanings of words and sentences from one language to another. Teaching translation, however, can be very dynamic. Incorporating service-learning and adopting a student-as-partner approach, Dr. Janice Pan runs her course Translation Workshop as a translation company in which her students enact roles like manager, designer and PR and take up translation jobs from various parties like NGOs and social enterprises. This is essentially an empowering process, enabling students to gain both a sense of ownership and responsibility. Their confidence and satisfaction are further elevated towards the end of the semester when TransFeed, a bilingual magazine that documents the company’s translated works throughout the semester, is published. Three issues of TransFeed have already been published so far, as this is already the third year Dr. Pan runs this exceptionally successful model. This model also led to the establishment of Inter-Link, a sister company of the Translation Workshop run by students of Community Interpreting, Dr. Pan’s second service-learning course. In this workshop, Dr. Pan, together with her current and graduated students, will share with us how translation and interpreting can serve as a strong bonding force in fostering partnerships between a teacher and her students.|
