RS is pleased to announce that our teaching team for subjects related to "Environmental Issues and Assistive Technology" has been awarded the Faculty Teaching Award for Outstanding Performance/Achievement in Teaching 2018/19, in recognition of the team’s outstanding performance and achievement in teaching. The team is also the recipient of the RS Outstanding Teaching Award 2018/2019.
The team consists of the following members:
Dr Kenneth Fong, Associate Professor, RS (Team Leader)
Mr Eddie Hai, Clinical Associate, RS
Mr Philip Ng, Technical Officer, RS
The team has incorporated innovative prototype making and interactive showcase, flipped classroom in contextual learning and blended learning in interactive virtual reality into the teaching of RS320 Environmental Issues in OT Practice, RS3200 Enabling Occupation: Environmental Issues and Assistive Technology, and RS5366 Environmental Issues in OT Practice. The subject-based projects supervised by the teaching team greatly enhanced the creativity of students, broadened their horizons and further inspired them with valuable experiences from showcases, presentation and overseas competition, influencing their current study as well as life-long learning. Such positive and intriguing experiences would benefit students on making significant contribution to the society at present and in the future. The impact of the project can be further demonstrated based on the positive feedback received from students, and many local and international awards gained for products designed.
In particular, the students taking these teaching subjects have been inspired and invented many creative products that have won awards in many international competitions, such as gaining awards in Global Student Innovation Challenge (gSIC) at International Convention on Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (i-CREATe) for six consecutive years. In the recent i-CREATe 2019, two teams of students won Gold and Bronze awards in the Design Category (details).
