PolyU wins LearnX Award for online teaching
PolyU scooped a prestigious Platinum Award in the category “F2F Classroom Training Transfer to Virtual Classroom Training Initiative” at Australia’s LearnX Live! Awards 2020.
The honour recognises the University’s e-learning initiatives that transfer face-to-face (F2F) classroom training to virtual-classroom, instructor-led training and its strategies to counteract the disruptions caused by COVID-19 in the past year. Based on a series of new pedagogies, including open pedagogy, curriculum co-creation, and open educational resources, the initiatives have created a refreshing learning environment for our students.
Dr Eric Tsui, Senior Education Development Officer of PolyU’s Education Development Centre, who hosted training seminars on the new pedagogies for PolyU teachers, said, “The LearnX Live! Awards is an international awards programme that recognizes multiple fields within learning, development and talent management across the corporate, education and public service sectors worldwide. PolyU’s award win is a testament to the University’s expertise in leveraging technologies to deliver best practice and facilitate students’ learning.”
PolyU has begun to move all face-to-face teaching to an online platform since January 2020. Academics adopted a customised approach to engage students in their online teaching sessions, without compromising the quality of learning and teaching. Today, PolyU has become one of the largest online teaching communities in Hong Kong.
