CUHK instituted the University Education Award in 2011-12 to honour teachers for outstanding commitment to the promotion of teaching excellence. Recipients of the award are commended for their contributions to enhancing students’ learning experience through curriculum design/development, for their adoption of learner-centred approaches, and their scholarship in teaching and learning. The selection panel of the University-wide education award comprises the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education), Associate Deans (Education) of the eight Faculties and the Director of University General Education.

The Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award has been given annually since 1999 by the Vice-Chancellor to exemplary teachers nominated by the Dean of each Faculty and the Senate Committee on General Education in recognition of their outstanding teaching performance.
