What colleagues say about the HKCPD Hub

  • The sharing session of online teaching practices is really useful as it combines intelligent and creative teachers' advice in one go. It is a good opportunity for us to pick someone else's brains about how to deliver more interesting and engaging lectures.

  • From this session, I have gained much understanding on how teachers from different universities face the challenges brought by the present situation. If possible, I will try to adopt those good practices in my classes, so students will find the lessons meaningful and engaging. I have learnt a lot from this session, and I am looking forward to the future sharing sessions.

  • Congratulations to the organizing team for making the online inter-institutional event a success! The fact that the presentations were given only 5 minutes each has made them even more concise and action-packed. It was a maverick idea to have a fellow teacher perform his music during the break! I thoroughly enjoyed the event and thank you so much!

  • The seminar has allowed me to know more about good online teaching practices in different universities. It is very helpful and encouraging to know that we are facing similar challenges and yet most of us are being positive in such circumstances during the virus outbreak.

  • Finding out how other teachers and centres adapted their courses for online learning was the big takeaway from this session. As well as exchanging ideas, the session was a chance to build the EAP community in Hong Kong as we navigate through challenging times.

  • The ‘Teaching in an online environment: Good practices in the face of uncertainty’ session is an excellent example of what a community of practice is all about. The session was well organized, creating a much-needed opportunity for colleagues from Hong Kong universities to share experiences during this extraordinary time. It was wonderful to have an occasion when we could interact and share best practices for online teaching. We need more events like this.

  • It was a good time to "sit" around with colleagues from different uni and share the practices that were used throughout this freshly-ended extraordinary semester. The sharing was very practical, and it allowed me to also reflect on my own practices during the semester. I also rest assured that I was not alone facing hiccups back then during my teaching semester. To add in another plus point, I really like the live streaming music session during the refreshment break.

  • I feel during these uncertain times of teaching and learning, the HKCPD Hub is certainly rising to the challenge by providing many avenues and opportunities for colleagues to stay resilient and determined in exploring sound ELT pedagogy. There is an event for everyone: blogs to share experience, podcasts to find out what teachers value, research ideas to build on pedagogy, and seminars to build skills. Kudos in your efforts to connect and empower teachers, Hub colleagues.

  • The HKCPD Hub is an ideal place for EAP/ESP teachers in higher education in Hong Kong to meet, share, discuss and develop in a community of practice with a common goal to enhance our students' learning and use of English in academic and professional contexts.

  • The session has provided an invaluable opportunity for participants to learn from and be inspired by one another's experience and gain more insights into Zoom teaching and learning. It also provides much support and encouragement, and room for reflection and exploration. l personally feel more empowered and confident in engaging students with online learning, discussions and consultations to achieve specific teaching and learning goals.
