Organized by Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL)

Speakers: Dr Julie Chen, Dr Weng Chin, Dr Colman Fung,
Department of Family Medicine and Primary Care, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, HKU
Date: 5th June, 2014 (Thursday)
Time: 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm
Venue: Room 321, Run Run Shaw Building

Abstract:

Doctors, dentists, lawyers, teachers, business professionals are all expected to manifest professionalism, demonstrating attributes required for quality patient / client / student / customer care and service. Such professional attributes, including responsibility, honesty, respect, are expected to be acquired over the course of studies without necessarily being “taught,” but a quick look at newspaper headlines suggests that professional attitudes and behaviours in these professions could be further enhanced. A new longitudinal programme structured around early experiential learning in the Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine was recently initiated with the support of a Teaching Development Grant (TDG) to explore how the learning of professionalism might be made explicit in the undergraduate medical curriculum. The speakers will share their experience in developing the “Professionalism in Practice” programme and the lessons learned which may be relevant to other disciplines.

About the Speakers:

Dr Julie Chen is a family physician who is currently the Chief of Undergraduate Education in the Department of Family Medicine and Primary Care with a joint appointment to the Institute of Medical and Health Sciences Education (IMHSE). Her academic interests include the learning of professionalism, the role of medical humanities in medical education, and the development of student resilience and wellbeing. She is the recipient of the 2012 Faculty Teaching Medal and the 2013 Outstanding Teaching Award (Team) and is the Principal Investigator of this TDG project.

Dr Weng Chin is a family physician and the Family Medicine Clerkships Coordinator in the Department of Family Medicine and Primary Care also jointly appointed to IMHSE. She is primarily involved in undergraduate Family Medicine teaching, curriculum development and quality assurance of the undergraduate medical curriculum. She received the 2013 Faculty Teaching Medal and is a Co-investigator in this TDG.

Dr Colman Fung is a family physician and Coordinator of Clinical Services in the Department of Family Medicine and Primary Care. He is involved in clinical Family Medicine teaching as well as in facilitating PBL tutorials and is a Co-investigator in this TDG.

Message from Division of Landscape Architecture

Friday, 28 March 2014
Lunchtime Public Lecture
HKU Division of Landscape Architecture

THE EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING OF SUSTAINABILITY
Ms Vincci Mak
Assistant Professor
HKU Division of Landscape Architecture

Abstract:

Sustainability has taken a crucial role in Hong Kong’s education. The HKU Division of Landscape Architecture is currently at the frontier of research and teaching of sustainable development in the region.

This talk will present a research project, “Hong Kong Platforms: Towards a Sustainable City” (HKPL), as a case study to discuss the experiential learning of sustainability.

While global sustainable issues are usually covered in taught courses, HKPL has developed a set of interactive tools for students to bridge the global scale of sustainability issues to their everyday life and the community that they live in. With this set of learning tools, students are able to engage in the study of sustainability in their everyday living environment, relating their own experience to the theoretical understanding of sustainability. The project also has an interactive discussion platform that we hope to nurture an on-going dialogue to discuss issues of sustainability in the future.
