Thursday, 21 September, 2017 - 12:30 to 14:00

Speaker:  Dr. Pakey Chik
                Head, Student Evaluation and Assessment, Office of Institutional Research

Venue:  Room 6558 (Lift 27-28)

Seminar Overview:

The term of “student success” is central to all forms of education. Depending on how “student success” is delineated, academic and professional staff are making a difference in the kind of learning outcomes to be achieved by their students. Then, what constitutes “student success” in higher education? How do certain characteristics and undergraduate learning experiences of students relate to their being considered successful? This seminar draws on the assessment and survey data collected from 370 undergraduate final year students in 2015/16 to help shed lights into these questions. The results indicate varied degrees of association among different students’ learning outcomes and their certain academic and campus life experiences at HKUST. This seminar will also discuss what faculty can do to make a difference in students' learning.
