Innovative Pedagogies in Online Teaching and Learning: Observations on KEEP
Eddy Yet, Bo Zhu and Antonio Cheung
Abstract / Video
KEEP (Knowledge & Education Exchange Platform) is a UGC-funded project for empowering educators and learners with impactful resources and innovative technologies for lifelong education. Since its launch in 2015, teachers from local universities and outside has hosted more than 200 online courses on KEEP, serving more than 29,000+ students, with a wide variety in their content and teaching mode.
Online education has enabled teachers to apply various pedagogies more efficiently than in a traditional setting. With the use of KEEP, instructors are practicing different innovative teaching methods, such as blended learning, flipped classroom, peer instruction, badges and gamification. Each of the practices has its own contribution to teaching, including enhancing learning motivation and deepening understanding.
Teachers and e-learning support units are welcomed to our parallel session and poster presentation to exchange observations and experience in adopting innovative teaching practices. We also welcome inquiries at email@example.com.
