Subject: 2023 UGC Teaching Award

Dear colleagues and students

I am delighted to share with you the exciting news that David Bishop of the Faculty of Business and Economics has won the prestigious 2023 UGC Teaching Award (General Faculty Members).

David has delivered outstanding teaching, innovation and dedication to student success throughout his academic career. In recognition of his achievements, he was honoured with the University Distinguished Teaching Award in 2022. He has a unique teaching style that combines intellectual curiosity, energy, drive and dedication to create exciting and rewarding learning opportunities for students.

David believes that students learn best when they are actively engaged in real-world problem-solving and decision-making. He has developed a variety of experiential courses that provide students with the opportunity to grapple intellectually with the intricacies of real-world business and legal problems. He has founded local and international award-winning charitable foundations and social enterprises, the majority of which are active today and support HKU student learning.

Please join me in extending our warm congratulations to David!

Best wishes, Ian
