Dear colleagues and friends

I am happy to announce the launch of our e-newsletter ‘Teaching and Learning Connections’, which aims to establish a channel for communication on teaching and learning related matters among HKU colleagues and beyond. This e-newsletter is an important part of our plans to cultivate a Community of Practice (CoP) on teaching and learning at HKU.

Over the years, the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) has supported teaching and learning at the University and facilitated dialogue about pedagogy between staff across campus. The CoP Project, funded by the University Grants Committee (UGC), has provided us with a new way of connecting people, sharing effective practices, and facilitating conversations even more widely. With the growing number of people who have shown their interest in the Project, we hope that this e-newsletter will support the further development of a learning community at the University of Hong Kong in the area of teaching and learning.

The inaugural issue of the e-newsletter discusses what cultivating a community of practice on teaching and learning might mean for HKU. Our contributors are from different units and faculties within and outside HKU. Several articles draw on the example of ‘wise assessment’, the details of which can be easily located on the same website (through the wise assessment page).

We also welcome you to express your opinions through various means embedded in this e-newsletter, for example, the comment box attached to each article, the discussion section, or the one-question poll. You might also wish to subscribe to us through the ‘subscription’ function on the website.

Should you have any queries or wish to make contributions to future issues, please do not hesitate to contact my colleague, Dr. Tracy Zou (tracyzou@hku.hk).

The following is the link to the e-newsletter:

I hope you enjoy reading the inaugural issue and we look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.
