The course describes the theoretical underpinnings of USR. It showcases some effective practices and activities carried out in institutions around the world. The course also promotes understanding of the USR concept, its implications, impacts, evaluation, possible implementation methods, and replicability. In doing so, it contributes to the expansion and consolidation of the USR movement. It provides a knowledge base for designing, planning, implementing, and evaluating programs from the fundamentals of USR and some existing good practices.
No prior knowledge is required to join the course. This course is for you especially if you are an administrator, a professor, or a professional staff member interested in learning new creative ways from the experts' at the universities to address the needs of society including SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). If you are a government official or a foundation representative seeking ways to strengthen higher education, this course will help you explore future opportunities and directions.
In this course, we have incorporated up-to-date theory, multimedia, and peer-to-peer interaction to bring our own expertise together with the benefits of collaborative learning to create an engaging instructional environment. We have brought our own institutions' expertise in service-learning together with experienced teachers from around the world, and academic experts in the field to give you a range of perspectives and make the material as useful as possible.
Given recent events, it is no surprise that PolyU and other universities are starting to place greater emphasis on Internationalisation at Home (IaH) as a means of creating alternative opportunities for global engagement. With this in mind, the University has set aside Teaching Development Grant (TDG) seed money for each department to set up its own respective project. This series of sharing sessions will briefly juxtapose the difference between Internationalisation and IaH, provide a brief guideline of expectations in support of the project proposals, and feature valuable insights from key educators who have worked with overseas partners and developed their own strategies for broadening our students' horizons.
