Abstract:
The aim of this project is to enhance the quality of residential education and learning for students by developing a sustainable, systematic and scalable staff development programme and nurturing a pool of competent staff in student residential halls or colleges at all local institutions. As the quality and effectiveness of residential learning depend heavily on the interactions between students and staff in student residences, by developing a pool of competent hall/college staff, this project will enhance student development at residences as an important element of undergraduate education.
