Conference on Credit Transfer Practices in Higher Education: Partnership for Success
30 Nov 2020
On 27 November, PolyU collaborated with the Hong Kong Council for Accreditation of Academic and Vocational Qualifications and the Federation for Self-financing Tertiary Education to organise an online conference themed “Credit Transfer Practices in Higher Education: Partnership for Success”, with the Education Bureau as the supporting organisation.
This conference aimed at advancing local credit transfer practices with streamlined programme articulation and more transparent information, exploring the integration of recognised overseas systems into the local education context and promoting a cross-institutional collaborative culture among sending and receiving institutions for the better learning experience of Senior Year Admitted (SYA) students.
Attracting more than 300 officials, academics and administrators from 55 organisations including government, sub-degree, self-financed and UGC-funded institutions and professional accreditation bodies, the conference offered a platform for local and overseas experts from Canada, Netherlands and the USA to share valuable experiences in the development of, challenges experienced with and support to credit transfer practices in higher education. The engaging interaction contributed to fruitful discussions, which provided inspirational feedback for both audiences and speakers.
The conference was organised by the UGC-funded Teaching and Learning Project “Enriching Senior Year Places Students' Learning Experience through Curricular and Co-curricular Activities in Hong Kong's Universities” (The SYA Project) led by Dr Kin CHEUNG, PolyU Associate Professor in the School of Nursing. The partnering institutions and co-organisers of the conference were City University of Hong Kong (Dr Bin Li as a co-leader), Hong Kong Baptist University (Prof. Peter Benz as a co-leader) and the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Prof. Ka Ming Chow as a co-leader).
