About the Project
The University of Hong Kong (HKU), in collaboration with The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and The City University of Hong Kong, have joined hands in implementing a project “Empowering University Teachers for the Next-Stage Virtual Teaching” which is funded by the University Grants Committee (UGC) Funding Scheme for UGC Special Grant for Strategic Development of Virtual Teaching and Learning – Inter-institutional Collaborative Activities Projects.
The project aims to empower teachers to further integrate learning technologies and educational development practices to make their virtual teaching more learner-centered, scalable and efficient. The four institutions collaborate on providing inter-institutional professional development activities for teachers on learning cutting-edge learning technologies and good practices for virtual instruction. This project also serves as a platform for sharing ideas and experiences of virtual instruction to develop teachers’ fundamental technical and instructional design capacity which prepares the higher education sector for the changing post-COVID global educational landscape.
