Colleagues interested in the scheme are welcome to join both workshops.

This workshop is open to all teaching staff who are interested in finding out more about the different Teaching Excellence Awards. Staff will be provided with an overview of the award schemes, the key selection criteria, and some suggestions on preparing an evidence-based teaching portfolio. Two award winners will share with us their experience of applying for the award. Staff who are thinking about making an application in the next round are strongly encouraged to attend this workshop. Staff who are not sure, or would simply like to know more about the scheme, are also very welcome.

The deadline for the next round of application is October 22, 2021. Please refer to the circular on Teaching Excellence Award Scheme, 2021 here:https://intraweb.hku.hk/reserved_1/tlearn/teas2021/TEAS_List_A_2021.pdf
