The ultimate goal for the CoP initiative at PolyU is to enhance teaching and learning across the University.

As such, the objectives for this CoPs are:

  • to bring together and connect colleagues who shares a common interest in enhancing teaching and learning at PolyU through the use of Learn@PolyU, and to facilitate their experience sharing and collaborative professional and teaching development;
  • to study and configure the features in Learn@PolyU, together with supporting learning processes, develop and deliver innovative and effective teaching practices in support of the University’s strategic teaching development targets (for the 2012-15 triennium the focuses will be the refinement and review of the new 4-year undergraduate programmes and the implementation of the new PolyU Strategic Plan);
  • to foster the culture of peer support and collaborative professional development in the use of LMS and associated technologies to support learning and teaching; and
