Excellence in Teaching = f(x) What is f(x)?

Tuesday, 30 August, 2011 - 11:00 to 12:00

Presenter:  Prof Ben Young, Professor of Structural Engineering

Format: Seminar

In this workshop, the speaker shared a somewhat different view on excellence in teaching. He has developed the 7- MUST teaching approach, which he has successfully applied for many years at universities in Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney. This teaching approach has been enthusiastically received by the students. Furthermore, it is a great challenge to teach large class of students. Conventional face-to-face lectures in large classes require special teaching skills. The speaker also shared his experiences on large class teaching of over 300 students. Pertinent issues on the outcome-based approach to student learning (OBASL) have been discussed. Finally, the speaker shared his view on future challenges to the higher education system in Hong Kong.
