Basic vocabulary for writing your application
Colleagues who plan to apply for Advance HE Fellowship in any category may find the MOOC on University Teaching useful in getting yourself familiar with the pedagogical vocabulary. It is developed at TALIC and led by Dr. Lily Min Zeng. It discusses a wide range of teaching and learning topics that are directly relevant to the dimensions of the Professional Standard Framework (PSF). Below is a table which maps the topics in the MOOC and the dimensions and subcategories under each dimension of the PSF to facilitate the writing of Fellowship applications among HKU colleagues. HKU portal login will be requested before you can watch the videos.
How to Use this Resource Effectively
Colleagues are strongly encouraged to watch the beginning of the videos, where the intended learning outcomes are stated, in order to choose the contents that are relevant to your writing plan.
The table below is organized according to the PSF dimensions. As some videos involve contents relevant to more than one dimension, you will see some videos listed under multiple PSF dimensions.
The videos in this MOOC are structured to support the completion of an online certificate on university teaching. Some videos (mostly in the first four modules) include interviews from experts, teachers and students. If you are looking for the conclusions only, you may go directly to the end of those videos to hear the summaries from the instructor.
