Workshop Outline

Teachers of any age groups may find it increasingly difficult to engage their students in learning. This workshop will examine the reasons behind and explore the elements behind learning motivation through activities and stories, including the speaker’s own homeschooling and online learning experience, and her work in introducing "learning by doing" in local schools. Participants will experience a workshop that incorporates choice and learning through different senses.

On completion of this workshop, the participants would be able to:

  • discuss self-directed learning in a broader view;
  • use different senses to motivate students’ learning; and
  • reflect upon their own values in life and education.

Ms Cam Cheung introduces the concept of “learning by doing” to engage students in learning.

The participants experience how to prepare a creative presentation.

Innovative Pedagogical Strategies in VPET Series

Innovative Pedagogical Strategies in VPET Series is funded by the Quality Enhancement Support Scheme (QESS) on the project of “Development of Effective Pedagogical Practices and a Cross-institutional Online Sharing Platform for Hong Kong's Vocational Education and Training (VET)”. It offers seminars and workshops on a regular basis to keep VPET academic and teaching staff, workplace mentors and VPET stakeholders abreast of the most updated flexible learning, innovative pedagogical practices, competency-based and task-oriented instructional strategies. It also serves the purpose of enhancing peer learning between institutions’ academic and teaching staff and workplace mentors to maximise support to students during their workplace learning and industrial attachment.
