Focusing upon matters that include student motivation, ‘good teaching practice’, etc., they will draw upon their own experiences and grant-centred projects to discuss the perils, pitfalls, and benefits aligned to e-learning and hybrid education. In so doing, what aids pedagogical growth within the context of the Arts Faculty at CUHK will be outlined.
