Teaching Excellence Awards 2014

As part of the Teaching Excellence Award Scheme, the Outstanding Teaching Award (OTA) signifies the University’s commitment to recognising and promoting excellence in teaching. This year, four teachers have been selected to receive the Award.

Nominations for the Award were considered by a Selection Panel chaired by the President and Vice-Chancellor. Members of the Panel comprised Professor Ian HOLLIDAY, Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching and Learning), Professor Grahame Tony BILBOW, Director of the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, Dr David Martin POMFRET, 2012 UGC Teaching Award recipient and 2010 OTA recipient, Mr Brenton NG Wing Yip, a student representative nominated by the Students’ Union and Professor Dai HOUNSELL, the external member. The University is indeed grateful to Professor Hounsell, Professor Emeritus and former Vice-Principal of the University of Edinburgh, for providing expert advice.

The Panel was deeply impressed by the awardees’ dedication to their students, their creative and tireless efforts to make learning enjoyable and challenging, and the impact they have made on their students’ learning. The Panel was confident that all award recipients will continue to contribute significantly to the enhancement of teaching and learning at HKU.
