Nurturing junior UG student’s research interest and curiosity in Economics

March 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm HKT


Date: 11 March 2024 (Monday)
Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm (HK time)
Venue: Learning Lab (RRS321, 3/F, Run Run Shaw Building, Main Campus, HKU)
Speaker: Dr. Ka-fu WONG, Principal Lecturer, HKU Business School, HKU
Facilitator: Prof. Lillian Luk, Assistant Professor, TALIC, HKU


Virtual Research Learning Centre is an initiative aiming to nurture junior UG student’s research interest and curiosity in Economics. A UGC Special Grant for Strategic Development of Virtual Teaching and Learning funded the project from 2021-2023. Student participants read newspaper articles written by HKU professors of Economics and reproduce these articles into short videos. By engaging in such activities, students learn the research skills and the logical reasoning behind the recommendation of our professors. The videos are archived in a webpage, available for public viewing. Participants who can produce two quality videos will be offered a part-time research assistant position for two months.
