Abstract:
During the current pandemic, teachers from the Faculty of Architecture have been looking for creative ways to maintain field trip experiences for students. Taking advantage of Twitch (video live streaming service), and Zoom, Mathew and Gavin from the Faculty of Architecture have been conducting virtual field trips in and around Hong Kong. Linking these real-world activities to the virtual T&L environment has helped students stay connected with their studies and to achieve authentic outcomes for their projects. The virtual field trips are also a synchronous teaching experience with the possibility to receive feedback in real time with the students. In the webinar, Mathew and Gavin will share their experiences and the techniques they use. Patrick, Leon and Sharon will share their experiences of designing, preparing and implementing virtual field trips, and discuss the range of possible applications for this approach. They will also look at the support and resources available at HKU for conducting virtual field trips.

This session will cover:

  • Experience sharing by the Faculty of Architecture in designing, preparing and implementing a virtual field trip
  • Create a virtual field trip with Google Earth
  • Support and resources at HKU in conducting a virtual field trip

Colleagues are very welcome to sign up on this workshop. Look forward to meeting you there!
