    Recipients of an AERA Outstanding Publication Award 2018 MoreClose

    We are pleased to announce that Miss Keisha Siriboe, our PhD student, and Dr Gary Harfitt have won an Outstanding Publication Award 2018 from the Narrative Research Special Interest Group (SIG) at the American Educational Research Association (AERA).

    The Outstanding Publication Award was established to recognize national and international scholars whose research publication contributes to narrative research in terms of the research design and research methodology.

    Their article entitled, A Parental perspective of school and familial curriculum making: a narrative inquiry of early childhood education planning in Hong Kong, was selected by the Outstanding Publication Award committee for its excellent contribution to narrative research, and it is clear how it contributes not just to research in general, but to the specialist field. The paper is drawn from Miss Siriboe's doctoral research and it is the first paper that she has had accepted by a refereed authority. A signal achievement for a first publication.

    Miss Siriboe and Dr Harfitt will receive the award in April 2018 at the Narrative Research SIG Business Meeting in New York, USA. Please join us in congratulating them.

    Dr Kennedy Chan received a University Teaching Feedback Award 2017 MoreClose

    We are delighted to announce that Dr Kennedy Chan has received a University Teaching Feedback Award (TFA) 2017.

    The TFA is the first student-led initiative for teaching and learning awards. It seeks to highlight and celebrate excellence in the provision of feedback by teachers to HKU students on their academic progress and performance. Teachers are nominated by their students, either by an individual or by groups of students enrolled in a course, if they consider feedback from their teachers to be excellent in its contribution to the quality of learning.   The nomination process is open to all students registered in HKU undergraduate programmes. Ten TFAs, one per Faculty, were selected by the Selection Panel, comprising of the Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching and Learning), the Director of the Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, Vice-President (Internal) of the Hong Kong University Students' Union and three student representatives.   More details about the TFA can be viewed at https://tl.hku.hk/tag/teaching-feedback-award/

    Please join us in extending our warmest congratulations to Kennedy!
