How to Deliver Interactive Dual-Mode Classes?

Dual-mode teaching provides both online and classroom-based instructions. However, teachers face various challenges as they journey through this form of teaching. The Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning has created a video (https://youtu.be/G8Vjv7VzAr0) on how to deliver interactive dual-mode classes. This video will introduce to you practical strategies to make your class more interactive, connect with your students better, and help achieve your learning outcomes. It will cover essential tips in managing your class, quick and easy activities to keep them engaged, and some tools you can use to motivate your students.

Presenters : Dr. Cecilia Chan, Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, HKU

Abstract
This is part of a workshop series to help both new and experienced teachers to realise the resources available in the university, particularly in terms of teachers’ recognition and potential in teaching, ultimately, to build their career in higher education. The “Building your Teaching Career in Academia” series will include workshops to help you develop your teaching portfolio for fellowship and Teaching Excellence Awards, career planning (particularly if you are on a teaching track), research into scholarship in teaching and learning including Teaching Development Grant, as well as sharing from other teachers who have been engaging in best teaching practices.

This workshop will focus on how to write a teaching development grant proposal. Given the deadline for the next round is on Friday, 16 October 2020, many teachers may be wondering if they should apply, or if they are qualified to apply, or what can they apply for, what kind of limitation, outcomes and initiatives are expected in a TDG; all the what and how of TDGs will be answered. I sincerely encourage you to come along if you are thinking of applying for a TDG.

About the Forum
The terms flipped, blended, flexible, hybrid, distance, synchronous, asynchronous, virtual and mobile learning have now become integral to our teaching. As we welcome students into our university in an online format for the first time, we also want to take the opportunity to converse with them and their teachers to learn more about this new experience.

This International Virtual Forum in teaching and learning brings us closer to one another, provides us a platform to reflect, share and chat with HKU students, teachers, experts, and colleagues from other universities around the world.

We are extremely fortunate to have senior leaders from HKU and universities in Australia, United Kingdom, Finland and Ireland with us to share their views on teaching and learning in the past months and to share their thoughts on how this will impact on universities in the coming years. More information about the Forum can be found here https://www.cetl.hku.hk/iforum2020/

Abstract
Dual-mode teaching at HKU will start from September 22, 2020. While most courses are available online throughout the current semester, some will have students returning to campus for face-to-face teaching in the classroom. In such mode, we need to engage both the face-to-face and online groups effectively, which can be challenging. Let us get together to discuss and share issues and solutions in order to be ready for the dual-mode teaching.

This session will take place right after the Chit-n-Chatting session on Building Your Teaching Career. Participants who have registered for the Chit-n-Chatting are welcome to stay and join. Colleagues are also very welcome to sign up only for this session on dual-mode teaching.

Look forward to meeting you there. Let us tackle this together!

Abstract
The “Building your Teaching Career in Academia” series includes workshops for both new and experienced teachers to realise the resources available in the university, particularly in terms of teachers’ recognition and potential in teaching, ultimately, to build their career in higher education. In this series, teachers will

  • plan their career (particularly if you are on teaching track),

  • chit and chatting, mix and matching on challenges, ideas and actions,
  • develop teaching portfolio for Teaching Excellence Awards and HEA fellowships,
  • as well as converse with other teachers who have been engaging in best teaching practices.

After the highly successful International Education 4.0 and the Sandbox series during the summer, the first workshop in this series will take on an easygoing and stimulating format for teachers to continue discuss, disseminate and discover good pedagogies. It will be a chit and chat, mix and matching on challenges, ideas and actions, allowing us to reflect back some of the approaches and incidents during the last 6 months. We will start by introducing some of the potentials and resources in HKU and what professional development plans CETL have for the coming year.

These gatherings require your participation to be successful. Come and join us, I guarantee you fun, challenging and rewarding conversation.

Dear colleagues,

I’m delighted to share with you the excellent news that Dr Susan Bridges has been appointed Director of the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) for three years from July 1. Susan is already a member of CETL, as well as of the Faculty of Education, and will be well known to many of you. She brings immense experience, good sense and good humour to the role. Susan will take over from Professor Grahame Bilbow, who will retire from HKU on June 30 after seven years as CETL Director. Grahame has been a key figure in promoting and shaping teaching and learning at HKU in recent years, and I’m very grateful for all his wise counsel and constructive assistance.

Best wishes, Ian
