Title: UGC-Teaching & Learning Projects Experience Sharing Series (Session 1)  
Facilitator(s): Ms Ivelina Ivanova (GIS)
Ms Angela Ng (LC)
Dr Pan Jun (ENG)
Abstract:

The University Grants Committee’s (UGC) Funding Scheme for Teaching and Learning aims to incentivise institutions to explore and develop further in the sector-wide strategic areas of teaching and learning, language enhancement and internationalisation.
It is encouraging that in the 2016-19 triennium, HKBU colleagues engage in 26 out of the 38 approved projects. Of these 26 funded projects, HKBU colleagues lead in 5 projects and join 21 led by other institutions. The total funding HKBU received is $42.32 million (16.6% of the total funding). These positive results are strong indicators of our colleagues’ commitment on working towards quality education. This workshop series therefore seeks to bring together our HKBU colleagues of UGC funded projects to share their project inspirations, challenges met, as well as the latest developments of their projects.
In this first session, we have cordially invited three project leaders / co-leaders to share their project experience which is related to their expertise in blended learning and linguistic pedagogy.
Workshop participants would get tips on how to design and implement teaching and learning projects and be better-prepared for the next round of funding competition.

Note: light lunch from 12:30 – 12:45 p.m.
Title: Developing students’ ability to succeed as graduates: Embedding employability as metacognition
Facilitator(s): Professor Dawn BENNETT
Professor and Director of the Creative Workforce Initiative at Curtin University in Perth, Western Australia
Abstract:

The development of employability—students’ abilities to negotiate the graduate labour market—is the responsibility of educators, students and leaders; however, teachers are by far the most important and influential people in students’ higher education experience. This workshop addresses how to overcome limited time, expertise and resources to develop employability within the existing curriculum.
This workshop, delivered by leading expert Professor Dawn Bennett, positions employability development as the cognitive and social development of students as capable and informed individuals, professionals and social citizens using the validated Literacies for Life (L4L) measure.
The workshop engages participants in a socio-cognitive self-assessment profile and follows with resources and strategies to embed employABILITY within existing programs and courses. The workshop will suit teachers, program leaders, curricular designers, senior managers and careers advisors. No prior expertise or experience is required.
Participants will leave the workshop equipped and ready to embed employABILITY thinking and the research-enabled tool into classes. Participants will gain:

  • Access to the online self-assessment profile tool for students;
  • Resources and career stories for use with students; and
  • Opportunities to engage in scholarship and educational research that flow from students’ responses and engagement.

Abstract:

Student internships are designed to give our students hands-on experience to complement classroom learning. Yet, how much of what we teach our students actually get applied and tested in the real world? Just as importantly, are we really tapping into our students’ workplace experiences to better understand which of our theories, models, frameworks and research work and don’t work? How can we better bridge this “knowing-doing” gap and in the process cultivate the next generation of thought-leaders (and educators) for a complicated world? These are the core questions we address in our 3-year, $9.7M UGC funded project. Please come and join us and hear the exciting things we are doing and in the process, help make this world a better place.

Join-the-Conversation: Internationalisation of the Curriculum (IoC): How Can We Integrate Global and Local Dimensions?

30 May 12:15 – 1:45 p.m. ACC209
Note: light lunch will be provided at 12:00 noon
Title: Join-the-Conversation: Internationalisation of the Curriculum (IoC): How Can We Integrate Global and Local Dimensions?
Speaker(s): Professor Kara CHAN

School of Communication, Hong Kong Baptist University

Dr. L. H. LI
Associate Professor, Department of Real Estate and Construction, The University of Hong Kong
Professor Julian GROVES
Associate Professor of Social Science Education, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Abstract:

Internationalisation of the curriculum (IoC), in its broad definition, encompasses not only the design of content materials, pedagogy and assessment that foster understanding of global perspectives, but also notions of how these elements interact with the local context. Taking a point of departure at the intriguing connection between the concepts of “global” and “local” in IoC, this workshop investigates how global-local interactions are actualised in teaching and learning; why they are crucial to developing graduates as responsible professionals and citizens in our interconnected world.

Our speakers from HKBU, HKU, and HKUST will share their different approaches to connecting the “local” with the “global” in their classroom teaching. You will hear how various approaches were selected or tailored to achieve specific education purposes and/or learning outcomes across multiple disciplines. Upon reflecting on the effectiveness and limitation of the different attempts together with our speakers, you would be able to shape your own approach(es) to cultivating students’ global-local awareness through the design of courses, teaching and learning activities, and assessment methods.

The Join-the-Conversation event will begin with a brief introduction of the UGC-funded cross-institutional project on internationalising teaching and learning and the latest development of its related community of practice, followed by a panel discussion led by teachers from the three partner institutions.
