To let our colleagues know more about how to turn their brilliant teaching ideas into a project and to apply for funding to implement their great ideas, the Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL) proudly presented a new initiative, QESS/TDG Project Sharing Series, in AY2020/21.
Dr Jack Wu, Assistant Professor of the Department of Supply Chain and Information Management, kindly kick-started the first seminar in our series on 26 November 2020 (Thursday), sharing his successes in our University’s Teaching Development Grant (TDG) and his QESS project.
Dr Wu insightfully drew our attention to some dos and don’ts based on his valuable experience in applying funding for his projects, namely his TDG on ‘Read-Out-Loud: An A.I. Driven App to Improve the Language Speaking Proficiency of Students in English and Putonghua’ (2019/20) and his two-year QESS on ‘Interactive Artificial Intelligence Assisted Chatbot for Self-improving Oral English Proficiency’ (2020).
Welcoming both on-site and online audience, the seminar was well-attended by over 30 colleagues, who found it motivating and interesting to learn how a project idea could be nurtured by picking up Chinglish in students’ presentations!
