The HKU Teaching and Learning Festival 2021

“You’re Invited!” Do you miss going to conferences? Do you miss lively interactions with fellow colleagues? This is the show that you are waiting for.  Join us to interact with HKU teachers as well as international leaders in teaching and learning.

The HKU Teaching and Learning Festival 2021 aims at celebrating the achievements of teaching innovation and development by HKU teachers through various endeavours, including, but not limited to, teaching development grants (TDGs). Starting from early April to late May 2021, multiple events – keynote speeches, workshops, open classroom observations, and poster showcases, will be taking place. Among these events, open classroom observations and poster showcases are the two highlights that will offer exciting opportunities for witnessing and experiencing how excellent teaching creates a positive impact on student learning. Check out which events interest you and join us online! All are welcome.
