The Teaching and Learning Innovation Expo is one of the most important annual events at CUHK where teachers showcase their efforts in teaching and learning. The Expo features both technological advances and pedagogical practices, and it provides an excellent platform for teachers to discover new possibilities in education. I would like to invite you all to participate in this meaningful event which will be held on 3rd December 2019. 

Achieving teaching excellence has always been our goal. Teachers need to equip students with the necessary knowledge and skills for the competitive society of the 21st century. As educators, there is no doubt that we have to take a proactive role in making use of various pedagogical and technological innovations for the best possible learning outcomes.  


My participation in the previous Expos assures me that many teachers have been keen to try out innovative teaching and learning approaches, including active learning, outcome-based learning, and authentic learning. I have witnessed how different technologies, for example, various communication tools, multi-media resources, and the use of augmented- and virtual-reality can enhance teaching and learning and enable teachers to better understand students’ needs.  

The Expo is a valuable occasion for teachers to exchange their ideas. I sincerely wish the Expo great success and look forward to your joining us on the day.

The Teaching and Learning Innovation Expo has served as an excellent platform for insightful teaching ideas since its launch in the year of 2007. Passionate teachers and innovative minds not only from CUHK but also from other institutions in Hong Kong share their good practice and innovation in teaching and learning in this annual event. 

Dr. LEUNG Fung Lin Elean and her team in the Physical Education Unit, Prof. Darwin Tat Ming LAU from the Department of Mechanical and Automation Engineering, and Prof. Sidharth JAGGI from the Department of Information Engineering were awarded the University Education Award this year. I look forward to hearing from them the secret to their success. 


Students are essential stakeholders in university education. It is clear for teachers not to rely only on their judgment by to listen to students’ opinions and needs in implementing new teaching approaches. Students should contribute actively to the design of the learning environment and process. This need leads us to have a Student Voice Session in which we have a chance to review teaching and learning from students’ perspective.

The Poster Presentation and Parallel Talks are highlights of the day. There will showcase innovative teaching and learning strategies from teachers of CUHK as well as other universities. The community-style atmosphere lets teachers freely and comfortably share good practices.

I am sure we will all learn a lot at the Expo. See you all on the day.
