Abstract

Internationalisation of teaching and learning is a timely and significant issue for higher education in Hong Kong. This cross-disciplinary and cross-institutional project funded by the UGC has brought together professionals and enthusiasts, like us, to explore good approaches and practices of internationalisation of teaching and learning through CoP – ITL. This inaugural Join-the-Conversation aims to honour a number of emerging practices and development in three universities in Hong Kong and to bring participants into fruitful conversation with one another.

We are honoured to have speakers from HKU, HKUST and HKBU to share their practices as well as directors of teaching and learning centres in the three respective universities to give us valuable insights into the facilitation of internationalisation. Some findings obtained from the groundwork underpinning our project development will also be presented. Towards the end of the event, there will be a sneak peek at the funding opportunities for our CoP – ITL’s members who want to explore and put innovative approaches to internationalisation of teaching and learning into real practice.

To enrich our discussion, we invite you to complete a survey that helps reflect on your practices in relation to internationalisation of teaching and learning. Selected results will be shared and discussed with audiences. All data will be made anonymously. Please kindly complete the survey on or before 1 February 2018 so that we can include your response for discussion at the event. Come along and be part of this community.

One-day Join-the-Conversation: Community of Practice – Aspects of Internationalisation
Date : 24 June 2016 (Friday)
Time : 8:45 a.m. – 5:15 p.m.
Venue : CPD 3.28, The Jockey Club Tower, Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong

Abstract

This year, the University of Hong Kong was ranked the third most international university in the world. Indeed, as part of the University’s vision for this triennium, we proclaim ourselves Asia’s Global University.

This event acts as a showcase of what we know and value about the internationalisation of teaching and learning at the University of Hong Kong, and what we can learn about trends in internationalisation globally. The programme focuses on three key aspects of internationalisation in relation to students, academic staff and the curriculum, and explores how, collectively, they help to shape an international university. As is only fitting for an event focused on internationalisation, we have invited renowned scholars from around the world to share their insights and experiences with us.

This event is taking place under the aegis of CETL’s Community of Practice Project, which has resulted in collaboration with staff from across the campus with the intention of fostering a community of practice in teaching and learning – collaboration which has already resulted in a creation of a large bank of teaching and learning resources based on case studies at the University of Hong Kong and internationally.

Dear colleagues and friends

I am happy to announce the launch of our e-newsletter ‘Teaching and Learning Connections’, which aims to establish a channel for communication on teaching and learning related matters among HKU colleagues and beyond. This e-newsletter is an important part of our plans to cultivate a Community of Practice (CoP) on teaching and learning at HKU.

Over the years, the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) has supported teaching and learning at the University and facilitated dialogue about pedagogy between staff across campus. The CoP Project, funded by the University Grants Committee (UGC), has provided us with a new way of connecting people, sharing effective practices, and facilitating conversations even more widely. With the growing number of people who have shown their interest in the Project, we hope that this e-newsletter will support the further development of a learning community at the University of Hong Kong in the area of teaching and learning.

The inaugural issue of the e-newsletter discusses what cultivating a community of practice on teaching and learning might mean for HKU. Our contributors are from different units and faculties within and outside HKU. Several articles draw on the example of ‘wise assessment’, the details of which can be easily located on the same website (through the wise assessment page).

We also welcome you to express your opinions through various means embedded in this e-newsletter, for example, the comment box attached to each article, the discussion section, or the one-question poll. You might also wish to subscribe to us through the ‘subscription’ function on the website.

Should you have any queries or wish to make contributions to future issues, please do not hesitate to contact my colleague, Dr. Tracy Zou (tracyzou@hku.hk).

The following is the link to the e-newsletter:

I hope you enjoy reading the inaugural issue and we look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.

Best regards
