Ms Vicky Man, Senior Lecturer of the Language Centre of Hong Kong Baptist University, has received the 2022 UGC Teaching Award for Collaborative Teams as a member of the English Across the Curriculum (EAC) Team.
The leader of this inter-institutional team is The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Other members come from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and City University of Hong Kong.
Over a period of eight years, the Team has generated multiple innovative and effective strategies for developing students’ academic literacy, including the deployment of multi-modal English Across the Curriculum resources and the mobile app “Capstone Ninja”. Teachers of English and other disciplines, as well as their students from UGC-funded universities, have all benefitted as the Team has successfully built a culture conducive to student-centred and interdisciplinary collaboration.
This is the fourth year in a row that HKBU teachers have won a prestigious UGC Teaching Award, which is a distinct honour presented by the University Grants Committee. Ms Man’s achievement demonstrates how HKBU is committed to offering quality education to students.
