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.
