Co-Constructing Excellence: Recognising, Scaffolding and Building Excellence in University Learning and Teaching, 18-19 December 2018, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Online submission system:

Universities around the world are grappling with the challenge of establishing a learning and teaching culture that is built upon the notion of teaching excellence. Such initiatives inevitably involve stakeholders at all levels of the university, from faculty members who teach in the classroom, to academic heads who lead and manage the culture, and senior management who are responsible for establishing policy direction and strategy. This conference will draw on wisdom from each of these constituencies, who, together, Co-Construct Excellence in university learning and teaching.

We warmly invite you to participate in this conference, held at the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning of the University of Hong Kong. The main aim of the conference will be to explore, and achieve some measure of consensus on, how we define and measure teaching excellence, and how we set about building, recognising and reinforcing a culture of teaching excellence in our institutions.
