The overall aim of this project is to provide a graduated professional development support experience across all participating UGC funded institutions to facilitate the development of teachers’ skills in online and blended teaching. Coordinating this effort across institutions and conducting in a blended mode will:
a) encourage consistency and quality through good practices and broad evaluation
b) add authenticity through offering blended professional development experiences to teachers located in different institutions
c) allow the pooling of professional development staff and resources for the benefit of all.
The project involves five institutions (PolyU, EdUHK, HKBU, HKU and HKUST) who will work collaboratively towards the overall aim of the project, whilst further developing strategies and initiatives that contextualise and address their own institutional needs.
