Dear Colleagues,

Join our online poster showcase session and be amazed by our teachers’ innovation and creativity in their teaching development grants (TDGs). Being online does not mean we cannot have exciting chats and interactions with peers. In fact, this is far more exciting than a usual poster session in a traditional conference. Let’s celebrate the wonderful achievements of our colleagues.

Date: 14 April 2021 (Wednesday)

Time: 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm (HKT)

Venue: Conducted via Zoom

Following the poster showcase session, there will be an open classroom observation session offered by Dr. Peter Cobb from the Faculty of Education and Faculty of Arts on the same day. In this session, Dr. Cobb will explore the stuff of the past to understand our own and others’ lived experiences. This class will work together to explore the past and its relationship to the present – while simultaneously considering the things in our own daily lives. Below is the information for the first classroom observation:
