HKBU signs MOU with UNESCO HK to build students’ awareness of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

浸大與香港聯合國教科文組織協會簽署備忘錄 致力提升學生對聯合國持續發展目標的認識

Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) today (7 June) with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation Hong Kong Association (UNESCO HK) on the collaboration to promote university students’ awareness of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through gamified learning and challenge-based learning approaches.
 
The MOU was signed by Dr Albert Chau, Vice-President (Teaching and Learning) of HKBU, and Dr Darwin Chen, President of UNESCO HK, on behalf of the two organisations, under the witness of Professor Lee Ngok and Professor Ying Yu-hing, Vice Presidents of UNESCO HK, Dr Yuen Kwok-keung, Executive Manager of UNESCO HK, and staff members from HKBU.
 
HKBU’s Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning (CHTL) is currently leading a teaching and learning project entitled “Developing Multidisciplinary and Multicultural Competences through Gamification and Challenge-Based Collaborative Learning” (CCGame Project) funded by the University Grants Committee, in collaboration with City University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University and Curtin University in Australia. Under the leadership of Dr Eva Wong, Director of CHTL, the main goal of this two-year project is to nurture students to be more capable of working with people of diversified backgrounds, and combine their disciplines of knowledge to tackle current real world issues.
 
HKBU and UNESCO HK develop a SDG-related question bank in collaboration for the gamified learning platforms used in the CCGame Project. This aims at building awareness of the SDGs of local and overseas students at HKBU and the partner institutions and gaining insights into sustainable development and current global challenges.
