The Student Learning Festival, co-organized by the Common Core, HKU Horizons, and Gallant Ho Experiential Learning Centre, is held on the final day of teaching each semester. It showcases interdisciplinary and international student work from across the campus. There are posters, videos, experiments, debates, and drama performances. There are virtual reality programmes, maps of Hong Kong, student-made phones, beach projects, and rooftop gardens. There is metamorphosis and the best things in life.

The students are doing amazing work! Drop by and see it, chat with them about their projects, their interests, and their next steps.

What Works? Intercultural Groupwork in the Common Core-banner

Jointly organised by CETL and Common Core

Details of the workshop:

Date : 15 May, 2017 (Monday)
Time : 12:45pm – 2:00pm (Light refreshments will be provided.)
Venue : Room 321, 3/F, Run Run Shaw Building (Main Campus), HKU
Speaker : Dr. Tracy Zou (CETL) and Prof. Gray Kochhar-Lindgren (Common Core)

Abstract

Rated as both the ‘best and the worst learning experiences’ by both students and lecturers, groupwork is a complex matter. What, then, about intercultural groupwork? Doesn’t this complicate the matter even further? Students could, of course, potentially develop their cultural competence and gain multiple perspectives about each other and the subject matter, but the issue is how can we actually make it work its best for everyone?

During this workshop, we will explore together how we might make intercultural groupwork creative, energetic, and effective. A number of good practices identified from 15 Common Core courses, as well as those from the scholarly literature, will be shared.

Speakers

Dr. Tracy Zou is an assistant professor in the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) at HKU. She has been engaging in the development and promotion of effective university teaching and learning on a number of topics, for example, groupwork, assessment, and internationalisation of teaching and learning. She has also been involved in groupwork research at both course and curriculum levels.

Prof. Gray Kochhar-Lindgren: Director, Common Core
