Get-Together: Ready for Dual-Mode Teaching?


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

Details of the workshop:
Date : 17 Sep 2020 (Thu)
Time : 2:00pm – 3:00pm (Note: this will take place right after the Chit-n-Chatting session)
Venue : Virtual Venue – via zoom
Presenters : Dr. Cecilia Chan, Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, HKU; Mr. Patrick Leung, Centre for Applied English Studies, HKU; Dr. Jian Yang, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine, HKU
Facilitator : Dr. Tracy Zou, Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, HKU

Dual-mode teaching at HKU will start from September 22, 2020. While most courses are available online throughout the current semester, some will have students returning to campus for face-to-face teaching in the classroom. In such mode, we need to engage both the face-to-face and online groups effectively, which can be challenging. Let us get together to discuss and share issues and solutions in order to be ready for the dual-mode teaching.

This session will take place right after the Chit-n-Chatting session on Building Your Teaching Career . Participants who have registered for the Chit-n-Chatting are welcome to stay and join. Colleagues are also very welcome to sign up only for this session on dual-mode teaching.

Look forward to meeting you there. Let us tackle this together!
