Abstract The unexpected class suspension in Semester 1 AY2019/20 resulted from social activities has drawn our attention to the needs of harnessing online teaching, learning and assessment. The University is expected to have a big increase in the use of both synchronous and asynchronous online teaching and assessment in the next semester. To better prepare colleagues for the transition, a series of TALES workshops will be delivered to familiarise colleagues with different e-tools that facilitate online learning.    
This workshop focuses on the use of the online meeting tool, ZOOM in teaching, learning and assessment. Three experienced ZOOM users from various departments will share their experience of conducting interactive online classes with the platform, tips on keeping the students as engaged as attending a face-to-face lesson, and things to observe in designing assessment when conducting teaching and learning online.

As the first HKBU teacher to receive this honour, we are delighted to have invited Dr Chaudhuri to share his insights in diversifying and internationalising students’ learning experience through innovative teaching designs. The shining examples of Dr Chaudhuri’s pedagogy include engaging his students to learn outside the classroom by making use of cutting-edge technology and enhancing language learning with a tele-collaborative project that connects HKBU students with overseas German-speaking peers. In addition to the creative curriculum design, Dr Chaudhuri will also share how he incorporated the 3C-teaching approach—Connect, Collaborate and Construct—into both face-to-face and online teaching to facilitate the development of global citizenship.

TALES 6 – Series on Developing Partnership and Learning Communities – (2) “Students as Partners: From a Song to a Concert” (Re-scheduled) February 17 12:45 pm – 2:15 pm TriAngle, DLB306
Title Series on Developing Partnership and Learning Communities – (2) “Students as Partners: From a Song to a Concert”(Re-scheduled)
Facilitator(s)
Dr CHOW Yiu Fai(HMW)
Presenting students: WONG Ka Wa & YUM Wing Ting
Abstract Pedagogic approaches that foster partnership help create supportive learning relationships between teachers, students and even members of the public. The formation of sustainable and reciprocal learning communities can also enhance the development of generic and subject-specific attributes (Crawford, Horsley, Hagyard, & Derricot, 2015; Pauli, Raymond-Barker, & Worrell, 2016). Aspiring to support colleagues in delivering the best student experience as stipulated in the University’s Institutional Strategic Plan (ISP), the CHTL, CISL, and GEO jointly developed this workshop series to explore the multiple facets of teaching and learning partnership at HKBU. Facilitators from diverse disciplines and departments will share how engaging experiential learning, service-learning, and interdisciplinary learning experience can be delivered by making innovative collaborations with students, academics, alumni, secondary schools, and NGOs.    

Dr Chow Yiu Fai, prominent lyricist and Associate Professor from Humanities and Creative Writing, will share his experience in engaging students in his course “Chinese Song Lyric Writing” as active learners and contributors. Dr Chow’s students interviewed socially marginalized figures and unsung heroes and wrote lyrics about them, and Dr Chow empowered these students by cultivating their leadership and letting them plan and organize two concerts in which they performed their own songs and invited the interviewees to attend. The concerts were well attended with 800 audiences from HKBU and the general public and received positive feedback from the media, showing the enormous success of the “students as partners” model. In this session, Dr Chow will share with participants his expertise in developing creative partnerships with students and his passion in exploring the boundless possibilities of teaching and learning.

The new General Education (GE) curriculum is a timely response to the growing call for interdisciplinary studies to meet the dynamic needs of todays’ students as global citizens in a highly interconnected world. The course Seeing the World from Artistic and Scientific Perspectives, a Level 2 Interdisciplinary Thematic Course (Science, Technology and Society) offered by Professor Zhu and Mr Kingsley Ng, is one of the notable GE courses designed and delivered through cross-faculty partnership. Professor Zhu and Mr Kingsley Ng will share their vision and experience in crossing the traditional faculty line and bringing together the art and science, as well as the gains and challenges encountered in course design and delivery, and ways to address them. A talk not to be missed by colleagues who are interested in the fast-growing interdisciplinary field in both teaching and research on teaching and learning.

AbstractWith the increasing demand of conducting online teaching to continue students’ quality learning at the University during this period of no face-to-face class, aspects of assessing student learning like interactivity, collaborative learning and collective construction of knowledge need to be managed differently online to help students meet the designated learning outcomes.    

We are delighted to have invited academic colleagues from different Faculties* to share their hands-on experience with discipline-specific examples on how to switch their well-used formative and summative assessment methods online to assess their students’ performance. Formative assessment methods (like discussion, quiz (short answer, multiple choice), paper, game, etc.) together with the pedagogical approach of blended learning allow teachers and students with timely and frequent feedback on achieving the designated course intended learning outcomes in class. Meanwhile, summative assessment methods (like open book exams, projects, portfolios, presentations, case study, video-making, experience based practicum, reflective journal etc.) allow teachers to assign student grades. The main issue here is, of course, making judgement based on students’ achievement online.

This series of five workshops as scheduled above will be conducted using ZOOM. By the end of workshop, you should be able to:
  • Identify relevant digital assessment methods using different e-pedagogies as part of the formative assessment in class.
  • Relate appropriate digital assessment methods as part of the summative assessment to make judgement on students’ online learning achievement.
* ‘Faculties’ denotes Faculties, Schools and AVA at HKBU

Remark: Standard Moodle functions like assignment, discussion, quiz and Turnitin, will be reminded in the workshop.

AbstractHaving practised online teaching and learning via different software this semester, we have learned many innovative online pedagogies and assessment methods to enhance student learning. With the many uncertainties ahead of us that some students may or may not be able to come back to the campus to attend classes physically, a mixed mode of face-to-face and online teaching may become predominant in the new academic year.

We are delighted to have invited three teachers to share their experience of conducting and preparing ‘mixed mode teaching’ (i.e. some students attend the class physically together with some attending virtually) to engage students in interactive activities and to assess student learning performance. They will also share some pros and cons of conducting ‘mixed mode teaching’.

In this session, our speakers will inspire you with some practical tips on conducting ‘mixed mode teaching’ to further facilitate your teaching and assessment in the days ahead.

By the end of this workshop, you should be able to:
  • Identify some pros and cons of adopting ‘mixed mode teaching’;
  • Relate some tips on conducting ‘mixed mode teaching’ to your course.
TimeMonday, 8 June, 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.
