TLC is collaborating with our University’s partner institution Alverno College (a liberal arts college in United States) to deliver ‘Lingnan-Alverno Blended Learning Workshop Series’, which aim to share Alverno’s expertise and experience in adopting blended learning with our Lingnan community. The workshop videos are available at Moodle for our interested colleagues to watch. In order to better facilitate interactions and exchange of views between our faculty members and Alverno’s speakers, two Panel Discussions are arranged. The Discussions entitled ‘Advantages of Using Technology in Face-to-face Teaching’ and ‘Challenges and Opportunities of Hybrid Teaching and Learning’ are respectively for the Workshop Sessions 1 and 2. Panel members comprise Professor Daniel Leister, Professor Lindsey Harness and Ms Kelly Gomoll from Alverno College, and Faculty Pioneers from Lingnan University.
