Advanced Teaching and Learning @ HKU

Organized by
Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL)

The ‘Advanced Teaching and Learning @ HKU’ programme is one of the foundation programmes in teaching and learning at the University of Hong Kong. The overall aim of this programme is to provide staff with an opportunity for in-depth application of the principles and concepts of scholarly, evidence-based approaches to teaching and learning. This programme builds on the one-day ‘Introduction to Teaching and Learning @ HKU’.

During this programme, participants will engage in interactive activities which provide them with knowledge and strategies in curriculum design that align with the educational aims of HKU and the 4-year undergraduate curriculum reform. Each of the HKU educational aims is associated with specific institutional learning outcomes. This programme will help you to consider your course learning outcomes, your faculty/programme learning outcomes and their relationship to the HKU educational aims.

Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the programme, participants will have:

  1. Engaged with evidence-based and research-led approaches to student learning in higher education and considered the implications for teaching;
  2. Developed a framework to support constructive alignment of curriculum elements: learning outcomes, teaching and learning activities including use of technologies and assessment approaches;
  3. Considered appropriate use of technology to enhance student learning;
  4. Applied teaching and learning theories and conceptions to their own practice;
  5. Examined and reviewed their own and their peers’ experiences and practices as teachers;
  6. Engaged in reflective practice, and critically analysed their own teaching

The ‘Advanced Teaching and Learning @ HKU’ is a mandatory programme for all new academic and academic-related staff with full-time teaching responsibilities commencing on or after September 1, 2011, and should be taken within the first two years of service after taking the Introduction to Teaching and Learning @ HKU. Depending on previous teaching experience, exemptions may be granted for the Advanced programme.
