Event Details:

The “Virtual Teaching and Learning Innovation Expo in the Metaverse”, which will be held virtually in the Metaverse on 15 June 2023 (HKT). This exhibition is jointly organised by The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), City University of Hong Kong (CityU), Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) and The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). In addition, the Innovation Expo is in collaboration with the Teaching and Learning Community of Practice at the Centre for Learning Enhancement And Research (CLEAR) of CUHK to co-create dialogue around VTL innovative practice during the pandemic and beyond.

This exhibition is our finale event of a two-year inter-institutional initiative, “Establishing Effective Virtual Teaching Strategies to Support Learning Beyond the Classroom”, made possible by the UGC fund of the Inter-institutional Collaborative Activities for VTL. This project is established to delve into what virtual teaching and learning (VTL) strategies have been adopted to transcend learning for students in Higher Education in Hong Kong. And now, we would like to bring together colleagues to collectively reflect on their VTL practice and discuss opportunity and challenge on this journey.

This showcase exhibition will comprise five real-time keynote speeches by scholars from CUHK, CityU, HKBU, HKUST and Monash University. The keynote sessions will be conducted in the Metaverse and be streamed on Zoom simultaneously. In addition, 31 pre-recorded presentations from teachers from a wide range of disciplines across 6 universities will be showcased on Mozilla Hubs.
