Improve student learning effectiveness by helping teachers to understand and implement blended learning

幫助教師明白及運用混合式學習提升學生學習成效

Students from self-financed higher education institutions have a diversified background as they come from different institutions and having different abilities. In this connection, there is a need for using effective teaching methods that can accommodate these differences to achieve the intending learning outcomes. Blended learning (BL) has proved to be an effective practice in certain universities but it requires a good understanding of the concepts, technologies, skills, and precautions for successful implementation. Most importantly, the mindset of teachers at universities needs to change from chalk-and-talk to student-centred learning. This project aims to improve student learning effectiveness by helping teachers to understand and implement BL through a series of seminars, workshops and synchronous online learning sessions. We welcome teachers from other self-financed higher education institutions to join these activities so that more teachers can improve their pedagogy and practice to benefit their students.
