uReply – A Comprehensive Mobile Tool for Classroom Interactions
uReply is a campus-wide classroom communication tool for use with mobile devices designed to facilitate teacher-student interactions. It has the following characteristics and features:

  • Ease of use: Students are allowed to use their own mobile devices (e.g. smart phone, tablet and notebook) instead of the keyboard devices such as “clickers” provided by teachers.
  • Campus-wide: It supports multiple classes to use it instantaneously in the campus, no matter the class size.
  • Cloud-based: It allows teachers to collect students’ responses and generates reports instantly during class.
  • Cross-platforms: It works on most of the web browsers, as well as in various digital devices and operation systems.

This workshop will explain the basic operations of the tool as well as share a few ideas on how to use the technology to achieve active and engaged learning.

CUHK eLearning Community of Practice (eLCoP) & Centre for eLearning Innovation and Technology (ELITE)
Information Session on eLearning Services and Grants
The use of technology is common in many teaching and learning innovations nowadays. Teachers need to know more about the support that are available in the campus when they plan their innovations and apply for the funding needed - e.g. Teaching Development and Language Enhancement Grant (TDLEG), or Micro-Module Courseware Development Grant Schemes (MMCDGS).

This Information Session will introduce the various eLearning services provided by the newly-restructured Center for eLearning Innovation and Technology (ELITE), including production of courseware packages or resources, hosting of the resources in various platforms, and the development of more sophisticated applications. Examples of previous work will be shown with the costs incurred to assist teachers to plan their projects.

Key to the success of e-learning studies- Strategies of finding innovative research topics
PROFESSOR GWO-JEN HWANG

Chair Professor of the Graduate Institute of Digital Learning and Education and Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, National Taiwan University of Science

Title: Key to the success of e-learning studies- Strategies of finding innovative research topics

Abstract: The advancement of computing and communication technologies has significantly changed the conception of teaching and learning in the past decades. Such a paradigm shift has attracted the attention of researchers from both the fields of computer science and education technology, who have tried to conduct various experimental e-learning studies to improve students’ learning performances. However, it is found that finding a valuable and innovative research topic is a challenging task for most researchers. Many papers submitted to well recognized journals are rejected owing to the lack of innovations in the studies. In this talk, Prof. Hwang is going to present the strategies for finding innovative e-learning research topics as well as the criteria of publishing a quality paper. In addition, several authentic examples will be given to demonstrate how the value of an e-learning study can be promoted.

Facilitators: Dr. Fridolin Ting (AMA) and Dr. Ronnie H. Shroff (AMA)

Enhancing Engagement in Teaching and Learning with Technology
New technologies have been changing the way we teach and learn. While we are presented with numerous innovative pedagogies and tools, there are common practices that can be adopted to enhance engagement and teaching effectiveness. In the first part of this seminar, the Knowledge and Education Exchange Platform (KEEP) will present local examples of flipped classroom, online supplementary modules and content visualization in higher education, and discuss why more teachers are adopting these practices.

The second part of the seminar will focus on HKU’s gamified flipped classroom practices. The University’s Technology-Enriched Learning Initiative (TELI) has been trying to bring students a new dimension of immersive learning. In this presentation, Professor Ricky Kwok will introduce good practices in gamification in the classroom, and present TELI’s work in this area to-date. The talk will address the challenges and strategies of balancing entertainment and education, driving competition in game-based learning to inspire achievement of learning outcomes, and creating a gaming space that brings learners closer.

Bilingual Text-Mining for Personalized Learning Reflection
The KEEP team at CUHK and EdUHK is jointly organizing a seminar for teachers to get in touch with the latest innovative online teaching practices. The seminar consists of two small talks, with details as follows:



Innovative Practices in Online Teaching
Mr. Eddy Yet, Project Coordinator, Knowledge & Education Exchange Platform (KEEP), The Chinese University of Hong Kong


Since the launch of KEEP in 2015, 219 online courses, mostly from local universities, have been offered with a variety of innovative pedagogies and blended learning practices. KEEP will share how these practices are changing the way we teach and learn.



Bilingual Text-mining for Personalized Learning Reflection
Prof. Siu-Cheung Kong, Centre for Learning, Teaching and Technology, The Education University of Hong Kong

The EdUHK team shares the pedagogical experience of using bilingual text-mining in course delivery for an efficient and evident tracking of students’ conceptual change in course learning. The bilingual text-mining system incorporates a bilingual taxonomy of domain-specific keywords for an automatic identification and counting of matching keywords in student-generated text on the learning management system Moodle. Each student can access the hierarchical visualization for an interactive comparison of his/her own usage of matching keywords with the whole-class usage. This data-oriented initiative is potential to support students to make concrete reflection on their personalized progress in learning course concepts.

 

The arrangement of the seminar is as follows:

Date: 5 Dec 2018 (Wed)

Time: 1:00 - 2:30 pm

Venue: E-P-13 (Mobile Computing Laboratory), The Education University of Hong Kong

Enquiries: Ms. Brenda Wong (Tel: 2948 8740 / Email: bnmwong@eduhk.hk)

Eligibility: All staff and students of EdUHK are welcome. Participation in this workshop can be counted towards the Certificate Course “Introduction to Teaching in Higher Education” under the theme, “Seminars/Workshops in Learning and Teaching”.

Tracking Students’ Conceptual Change through Bilingual Text-Mining of Student-Generated Text on Learning Management System
Apart from assessments, text-mining is another tool that can uncover the learning outcomes of your students. The seminar “Tracking Students’ Conceptual Change through Bilingual Text-Mining of Student-Generated Text on Learning Management System” spoken by Prof. Kong Siu Cheung will bring you the experience from EdUHK regarding the matter.

Prof. Kong is the Director of Centre for Learning, Teaching and Technology of EdUHK with extensive experience in education research. In the Knowledge & Education Exchange Platform (KEEP) project, his team has developed the Bilingual Text-Mining System that can identify keywords in Chinese and English appearing in students’ online discussions. This enables teachers to know the learning status of their students as well as to make teaching decisions with the support of data.

The seminar is organized by Dr. Paula Hodgson of the Centre for Learning Enhancement and Research (CLEAR) in CUHK. More information can be found on the website of CLEAR.
