Description

 

 為應對COVID-19大流行,全球師生都使用資訊科技進行遙距教育。香港城市大學為電子學習先驅,八天內即可從實體課堂過渡到同步在線教學(亦稱為CityU-Learning)。當今疫症大流行仍然持續,電子學習工具的使用範圍更趨廣泛,已從課堂講授、個別指導,擴展至實驗室、實習和考試。一場劃時代的教育革命,正通過教師和學生的貢獻不斷發展。本講座將分享我們在2020年及之前的工作如何推動這場教育革命,並通過回顧經驗、反思教訓,預測後疫症時代的教學新常態。

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers and students around the globe continue education remotely with the use of information technologies. City University of Hong Kong was one of the front runners to transition from physical classes to synchronous online teaching and learning (also known as CityU-Learning) in 8 days. While the pandemic persists, the extensive use of e-learning tools broadens from lectures and tutorials to laboratory work, practicums, and examinations. A revolution in education has been progressing with the contributions of all educators and learners. The seminar will reflect on what we did in 2020 and before to empower this education revolution, review the lessons learnt, and predict the new normal of teaching and learning after the pandemic.
