This presentation will discuss the future of global universities within the evolving context of current international education systems. It will begin with an overview of the challenges posed to modern day universities by the breadth and diversity of international further education curricular between the ages of 16 and 18 and the accessibility of world leading universities to international students, in general. Having established potential global trends in further education, the implications for global universities and higher education will be discussed within the context of both teaching and research Event Date: 17/05/2022 Speaker: Prof. David Cardwell (University of Cambridge) Moderator: Prof. Christoper Chao (Hong Kong Polytechnic University) Panel members: Prof. Wong Kwok-yin (Hong Kong Polytechnic University), Prof. Andrew Cohen (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology) Hosted by: PolyU Academy for Interdisciplinary Research
Find out how teachers from across PolyU have used ideas from the BOLT: Blended and Online Learning and Teaching course to develop Learning Innovation Plans for blended learning. We hope this sharing session will inspire you to develop blended learning strategies for the Summer Term and the academic year ahead. Event Date: 28/5/2021 Facilitator(s): Catherine Cheung (SHTM), Gemmy Moon (SHTM), Tracie Frost (AF), Dian Xiang Ji (AP), Ping Geng - E2I (HKUST), Dave Gatrell (EDC), Laura Zhou (EDC)
In this video, it shows an HKUST engineering showing how an engineer goes from identifying problems to coming up with a viable solution. As you watch it, see how in less than 3.5 minutes he:
Explains the origin of the problem (questions)
Drawbacks of the electric field device for water disinfection(originally)
Design problems (barriers) that needed to be considered in engineering solutions.
How engineers think creatively
