CIE presents Teaching Excellence Award to recognise three teachers

國際學院頒發傑出教學獎表揚三位教員

The College of International Education of the School of Continuing Education organised its second Teaching Excellence Award scheme to recognise three teaching staff for their outstanding teaching performance.

This year, the award recipients are Ms Bobo Lee from the Division of Arts and Languages; Dr Josephine Yau from the Division of Social Sciences; and Ms Anna Yuen from the Division of Communication.

Ms Bobo Lee said that sometimes students think there are few real-life applications of literary appreciation or that it is unrelated to their specialties. Therefore, she prepares teaching materials that cite current affairs articles to connect textbook learning with real-life examples to aid student learning.

Dr Josephine Yau not only teaches psychology, but also cares about students’ psychological health. She said students have yet to explore their full potential, hence they tend to underestimate their own capabilities. Dr Yau encourages students to take a challenge and build their self-belief.

Ms Anna Yuen said she believes that communication is a subject comprising both theory and practice. She keeps abreast of students’ understanding of the media industry, and considers experiential learning of vital importance to whole person education. She is keen on finding internship opportunities for her students and organising large-scale activities in order to enhance students’ learning and teamwork skills.

持續教育學院國際學院舉辦第二屆傑出教學獎,表揚教學人員的優秀教學表現。今屆由人文及語言學部李寶女士、社會科學學部游貝琳博士及傳理學部袁慧儀女士獲得殊榮。

李寶女士表示,同學很多時認為文學鑑賞等學科應用機會不多,亦與專修關係不大,因此她授課時會特意引用時事文章作為教材,讓同學結連學科知識與生活經驗,活學活用。

游貝琳博士不只教授心理學科,更關心同學的心理質素與健康。她認為同學尚在自我探索的階段,仍未透徹了解自己的強項弱點,容易低估自己的能力,她經常鼓勵同學挑戰自我,發掘潛能。

袁慧儀女士認為傳理學是一門理論與實踐並重的學科,她十分重視培養同學對傳媒行業的理解和洞察力。她相信課堂外的學習體驗對全人發展很重要,致力為同學爭取實習和籌備大型活動的機會,讓他們實踐課堂理論及發揮團隊精神。
