Teaching Exchange Fellowship Scheme Seminar – Aligning HKU Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) Training and Development with UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF)


Organised by Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL)

Details of the workshop:
Date : 18 December 2020 (Friday)
Time : 12:00 nn - 1:00 pm
Venue : Conducted via Zoom
Speaker : Dr. Ada Lee, CTLHE Programme Leader & Lecturer, CETL, HKU
Facilitator : Dr. Lily Zeng, Senior Lecturer, CETL

This seminar will discuss changes made to the Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (CTLHE) subsequent to a short visit to the UCL ARENA Centre in the summer of 2018. The ARENA Centre shapes UCL’s teaching and learning. Drawing on her experience attending a variety of ARENA workshops/seminars and her discussions with staff, the speaker will share experience and insights gained from the Fellowship that served to enable renewing of the CTLHE course contents, activities and assessment. As a result of such renewal, the CTLHE course aligns closer with the UK Professional Standards Framework. Completing the CTLHE course has now become an initial step towards professionalism in higher education for RPgs at HKU: RPgs are eligible to apply for the Associate Fellowship, Advance HE (AFHEA) provided that they have 25 hours of teaching in higher education. Exchange of ideas and practices during and after the visit has also been beneficial for the speaker to serve as mentor for both AFHEA and FHEA applicants. In this seminar, two RPgs who took CTLHE in 2019 and attained fellowships (one got AFHEA and the other got FHEA) will share experience earned from both the renewed CTLHE course and the mentoring process.
