Outstanding Teaching Award (OTA) Individual Award


Professor Wing-sum Cheung

Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Science
I teach from the perspective of the students. I would give timely motivation on what they are going to learn and why they are learning the materials. From time to time, I would also give a bird’s eye view of where the subject is within mathematics and sometimes even beyond mathematics.  Read on


Dr. Cole Roskam

Department of Architecture, Faculty of Architecture
The idea that teachers must demonstrate a passion, not only for the learning of others, but for learning from others, forms the foundation of my teaching philosophy.  Read on


Ms. Dorothy S.W. Tang

Department of Architecture, Faculty of Architecture
While it is important to set students up for success in the classroom, I believe that unsuccessful attempts are equally rewarding. Perhaps students should not be evaluated by the success of their final projects, but rather the process in which they set up the problems and execute solutions.  Read on

Dr. Tammy Y.L. Kwan

Faculty of Education
I strongly believe a teacher of excellence and a genuine professional, in addition, needs to be proactive in taking up leadership roles and possesses the courage to try innovative practices in both teaching and curriculum design. In my words, this is to get myself out of the comfort zone and explore into new round.  Read on

Dr. Kaimin Shih

Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering

Dr. Xiaojun Yan

Department of Politics and Public Administration, Faculty of Social Sciences

Outstanding Teaching Award (OTA) Team Award

Professor Li-chong Chan (Leader), Dr. Julie Y. Chen, Dr. Janice W.H. Tsang

Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine for A Medical Humanities Core Curriculum: Engaging Medical Students Through Experiential Learning
We believe that innovations in pedagogy i.e. curricula design and innovation, new formats of teaching, learning and assessment should not only drive our students to gain the capacity for greater awareness, self-reflection and transformation but also lead students to ‘connect the dots’ between disparate pieces of information which may appear to be unrelated and promote critical thinking to bring clarity to issues or conditions that appear uncertain or ill-defined.  Read on
