Education and the Student Experience

Further strengthen the quality of the curriculum

We currently host more than 50 programmes at postgraduate, undergraduate, sub-degree and certificate levels. Quality assurance and enhancement is central to the daily operation of all our programmes. To provide excellent academic learning, we need to keep abreast of the latest academic research, government policies, and the changing needs of the workforce in our local, regional, and global communities.

Over the next three years, we will:
•    critically review our existing programmes and conduct curriculum renewal, where necessary 
•    propose new programmes to address emerging societal needs

We aspire to enhance students’ learning experiences through formal and non-formal learning and draw on our collective talent to offer meaningful and exciting learning opportunities for our students. Professional development in teaching and learning is central to achieving this goal. With reference to university strategic development and current institutional data which informs quality assurance and enhancement,
we have identified three themes which will further build our capacity as educators and provide our students with an enhanced quality of experience.

Enhance students’ learning experiences



Virtual Teaching and Learning (VTL)

This advocates for pedagogical innovations to engage students in learning with the latest technologies.
Our academic and teaching staff will explore and exploit cutting-edge facilities such as the Future Classrooms in the EdUHK Library, Ednovation Space, and the Teaching and Learning Laboratory – e-learning Pedagogy Space.
We will be at the forefront of new developments and practices in online learning, blended learning and e-pedagogy in the post-pandemic era.


Authentic learning experiences

Our students will learn in authentic settings beyond the classroom. Examples include internship/ field-based learning, experiential learning, entrepreneurship and innovation, and research-based learning in Hong Kong and the Greater Bay Area.


Cultivating global, regional and national perspectives

Our students will develop a good understanding of other cultures, and have positive attitudes towards differences and diversity, and a readiness to communicate or work with people from different backgrounds.

Over the next three years, we will:
•    encourage programmes to incorporate global/regional perspectives as part of student assessment at course level
•    strengthen our engagement with the Greater Bay Area through study tours, internships, field experience, virtual tutorials and other learning experiences
•    encourage the spread of Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) across the Faculty
•    set up an FEHD innovation hub on the Faculty website to share resources and good practices
•    organise capacity building events and Leaders of Learning events in the focused areas
•    set up/revamp Faculty-level small-scale grants for staff and students in the focused areas
