In this upcoming seminar, Ms. Jody Chu will be sharing her experience and insights gained from University of Queensland, with a particular focus on the application of enquiry-based learning as part of a curriculum revamp. Furthermore, Jody will discuss the importance of considering a suitable balance between in-person and e-learning under the umbrella of enquiry-based learning.
