New Directions in e-learning in the Health Sciences

In 2012, higher education in Hong Kong underwent a historic shift in the provision of undergraduate curricula. Structurally, the time apportioned to university education and senior secondary schooling was adjusted. Conceptually, an outcomes-based model was adopted with an overall drive towards active student engagement in intellectual inquiry. In preparing 21st Century students, e-learning has been a major strategic goal of the University with new directions taken in revising the Learning Management System (LMS) and implementing blended, online and ‘flipped’ approaches. Additionally, HKU’s newly designed learning spaces have been constructed to support and enhance these approaches. In this talk, I will outline some principles and practices for e-learning currently adopted across The University of Hong Kong and will highlight specific, illustrative innovations from the Health Sciences, including Dentistry, as examples of good practice.
