An online conference entitled “Embracing the New Normal of Education: Blending Technology into Pedagogical Design” was organised by the Centre for Pedagogic Research of CPCE (CPCECPR) on 13 January 2022. Researchers and educators gathered together to discuss ways to overcome challenges in pedagogical practices caused by the pandemic.
The CPCECPR was honoured to invite Dr Choi Yuk-lin, JP, Under Secretary for Education of the HKSAR government as the Guest of Honour.
In his opening remarks, Prof. Peter Yuen, Dean of CPCE, said, “Last March, CPCE decided to further facilitate staff scholarly activities and established the Centre for Pedagogic Research. Later in the same year, CPCE also established a Big Data Lab and a STEM EdTech Lab to further support initiatives in the pedagogical area. The Conference today is a continuation of our effort along this line, offering researchers and practitioners the opportunity to engage in insightful discussions on ways to overcome the pedagogical challenges and evolve the use of technology in the post-pandemic era.”
The Conference encompassed three themes: Online/Blended Learning, EduTech, and Innovative Pedagogy. Prof. Bob Fox, Emeritus Professor, School of Education, University of New South Wales, and Prof. Poon Ka-yeung, Adjunct Associate Professor, Department of Marketing, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, were invited as Keynote Speakers to offer their insights into the topics of “Higher Education Innovation Through Blended and Digital Learning Beyond the COVID Era” and “Applying Robotics in Immersive Learning” respectively.
