Workshop Description: In the late 90’s, driven by research on metacognition, there was a move towards learner-centred pedagogies along with the adoption of learning portfolios that are intended to focus on students' personal learning journey over the span of their study period. With the emergence for online technologies and systems, learning portfolios evolved into on-line ePortfolios OR in this instance an iPortfolio (“Industry” and / or “Individual” / Personalised Online Portfolio), these online Portfolios were often lauded as a powerful pedagogical tools that can be typically used with the dual intention of: 

  1. encouraging critically self-reflective lifelong learning; and 
  2. gathering evidence of broad skills and competencies that may enhance future employment prospects (such as Integrated Learning Programme (ILP) activities). 

This session will provide for participants an overview of the TALENT – Lingnan iPortfolio project. This is a joint project between TLC, OSA and GS, funded from the UGC Special Grant for the Strategic Development of Virtual Teaching and Learning. The first phase of the project focusses on the extra-curricular activities of students and in particular the ILP. This session will be of interest for anyone who uses online portfolios for assessment/student learning.

Data Warehouse/Learning Analytics Workshop

Time/Venue:  24 November 2021 (Wednesday) at 3:00pm-4:00pm, LCH104, 1/F., Lau Chung Him Building

Facilitator(s): Dr Rain Li, Senior Analyst, Learning Analytics, Teaching and Learning Centre

Registration link: https://www.ln.edu.hk/sys/regbuilder/registration/LA_241121

Workshop Description:  Nowadays, the e-learning platforms used in most universities do not cover all teaching aspects since they do not usually provide teachers with tools which allow them to thoroughly track and assess all the activities performed by students, nor to evaluate the structure of the course content and its effectiveness in the learning process, especially related to monitoring and analysis of platform use, including usage statistics, level of adoption at an institution, course activity, among others. 

To answer some of these questions, and help educators identify problems and solutions more effectively and efficiently, we are developing a Teaching & Learning Data Warehouse Analytics System (TLDWS), by identifying related indicators and storing, sorting, and synthesizing summative, diagnostic, and formative assessment results. Furthermore, TLDWS will generate statistics, analytic models and uncovered meaningful patterns from data.


Day 5 (26 November 2021, Friday)

(4) Prof Mairéad Nic Giolla Mhichíl is Ireland’s first Director of Micro-Credential Strategy and Innovation based in Dublin City University. Prof. Nic Giolla Mhichíl is co-founder of DCU’s Micro-Credential observatory which curates global micro-credential research and developments. In 2020, she co-authored a Global Insights Report on micro-credentials in in 2020 and in collaboration with DCU’s Irish Institute of Digital Business and Skillnet Networks she was lead author on a publication to guide industry in its engagement with Micro-Credentials, A Micro-Credential Roadmap: Currency, Cohesion and Collaboration, as part of this work she published Ireland’s first National Micro-Credential Survey of Irish Employers and Employees in 2021.

She is currently co-editing a special edition on micro-credentials in her role as co-editor in chief of the International Journal of Educational Technology in Higher Education. 
 

Moderator: Prof. Peter Duffy, Director of Teaching and Learning Centre, Lingnan University

Registration link: https://www.ln.edu.hk/sys/regbuilder/registration/credentials_261121

Workshop Description: The idea of Micro-Credentialing relates to offering flexible and extended learning pathways for academic staff and students and creates an ongoing learning partnership with the institution both before and during UG study, as well as across PG study and beyond. 

“In skills, education and training policy around the world, micro-credentials are increasingly being positioned as a solution to a wide range of economic, labour market, and social challenges. Broadly defined, they are stackable, industry-aligned short units of learning designed to help individuals form specific skills and signal those skills to employers”.
REFERENCE OCED - https://www.oecd-forum.org/posts/micro-credentials-the-new-frontier-of-adult-education-and-training 

The growing use of micro-credentials is an outcome of the changing nature of the labour market and of growing uncertainty as to what work will look like in the future. Fewer ‘jobs for life’ now exist, and employers demand flexibility and quick reactions to changing circumstances. Micro-credentials are particularly useful as a response to the changing education and economic realities due to Covid-19. In this situation, as they allow for tailored, quick and accessible skills (re)development, this panel will explore the place for micro-credentialling in Hong Kong from various perspectives.


Learning Managaement System Pilot – Test drive CANVAS / Blackboard

Time/Venue: 26 November 2021 (Friday) at 12:00pm-2:00pm, Skylight Area

Facilitator(s): Mr James Chong, Manager & Strategic Lead, Learning Innovation, Teaching and Learning Centre

Teaching as Craft Workshop

Time/Venue: 26 November 2021 (Friday) at 2:00pm-3:00pm, LCH UG08, UG level, Lau Chung Him Building

Facilitator(s): Mr. Pete Andrews, Learning Designer, Learning Enhancement and Design, Teaching and Learning Centre

Registration link: https://www.ln.edu.hk/sys/regbuilder/registration/craft_261121

Workshop Description: Teaching is sometimes described as a science, sometimes as an art. Another way to see teaching is as a craft. In the craft model, practical teaching skills are developed through experience, reflection and close support from colleagues. This way to gain proficiency and confidence has a long tradition in Japan and is called ‘jugyo kenkyu’ (or ‘lesson study’).  

In this session, examples of teaching skills will be demonstrated and methods of lesson study clarified. The session facilitator will then invite discussion on how the TLC might support the development of Lingnan teaching staff using this craft model. 

The aims of this session are to: 

  • raise awareness of teacher-centred means to develop professionally
  • discuss the potential of a ‘Teaching as Craft’ community of practice

Mobile Learning Workshop (Using Soqqle for Mobile Social Learning and Gamification)

Time/Venue: 26 November 2021 (Friday) at 3:00pm-4:00pm, LCH UG08, UG level, Lau Chung Him Building

Facilitator(s): Mr Daniel Shen, CEO and CTO of Soggle (HKSTP company) and Mr James Chong, Manager and Strategic Lead, Learning Innovation, Teaching and Learning Centre

Registration link: https://www.ln.edu.hk/sys/regbuilder/registration/mobilelearning_251121

Workshop Description: Despite the popularity of social networks, the implementation of peer to peer engagements for knowledge building in a similar community-based environment is unclear. This is especially so in a video-based setting where the realism of the format can allow different types of learning outcomes. Soqqle can be used to create a community and social based environment, powered with multi-modal teaching and learning methods to facilitate dialogue. In this session, Daniel will go through how the mobile application can be used for learning objectives, like language learning, science, business and more. Soggle was introduced to Lingnan as one of Mobile Learning Initiatives. It is used by Prof. Gary Wong (Department of Economics), Prof. Haoran Xie (Department of Computing and Decision Science) and Prof. Paulina Wong (Science Unit).
