Faculty Pioneers Roles and Duties

BACKGROUND

The University Administrative and Planning Committee (UAPC) recently approved a Faculty Pioneer Scheme that $20,000 (in the form of a special grant for research and conference attendance) be granted to each of the Faculty Pioneers (one award for each department/unit) for one year to recognize and reward his/her contributions to teaching and learning. The Scheme shall cover 20 academic departments/units (9 in the Arts Faculty including CEAL and CLEAC, 5 in the Business Faculty, and 4 in the Social Sciences Faculty, the Science Unit as well as the School of Graduate Studies (SGS)). Under the scheme, the awards can be made to individuals as well as teams. The Sub-Committee on Teaching and Learning (SCTL) will oversee the Scheme with effect from 1 April 2020 with support of the Teaching and Learning Centre (TLC) on implementation. (REF - SCTL/19/3/A7).

 

The Pioneer roles are seen to be an integral aspect of the work across the University in achieving the Strategic Plan 2019 – 2025 (https://www.ln.edu.hk/strategic-plan/eng/undergraduate.html ), in particular the area of ““To develop smart teaching and learning and other cutting-edge pedagogies with the help of new digital education technologies to support teaching and learning endeavours to meet students’ new learning needs in a rapidly changing world where new knowledge and skills continue to appear and workplace requirements are constantly changing”. This initiative also aligns with recommendation six from the senate approved paper entitled “Enhancing Innovative Teaching and Learning at Lingnan: An Implementation Proposal” (ref; SEN/19/3/A8). It also aligns with the goals of the top-sliced TDLEG project, “Advancing Blended Learning @ Lingnan to a New Stage”, which was attachment 1 to the “Plan for the Use of the Teaching Development and Language Enhancement Grant (TDLEG) in the 2019 – 22 Triennium”.

 

These roles are designed to be negotiated with the nominees as far as possible. Also, it is envisaged that the Pioneer roles, over the duration of the initiative could change and align with Faculty specific initiatives. Below are the current nominees:

Term of the Roles

  • The Pioneer roles are for 1 Academic year (2020 – 2021) with some preparation and post work. Noted is that the roles may be shared across different staff / teams from the Faculty / Department

  • Disseminate project activities and outcomes to Faculty and the wider Lingnan community
  • Attend a community lunch meeting/forum/presentation approximately once a month (from 1-2 hours duration) ~ 8 times a year

Estimated time commitment would be approximately 1 hour per month to attend the regular community meeting + roughly 1-2 hours on associated follow up actions and possibly some additional commitment at other peak times such as during dissemination activities. In addition, the implementation of a specific Blended Learning project with extensive support from TLC would be part of the expected time commitment.
