On 8 March 2016, Department of Early Childhood Education organised a departmental sharing session with TEL-Hub to share their teaching experiences with blended learning tools. The main presenters were Dr. HU Xinyun, Annie, Dr. Lam Ho Cheong and Dr. Han Chung Wai Christina. They demonstrated their Moodle courses and how they integrated online learning activities in their teaching to enhance student online engagement.
A total of 13 participants joined in this sharing session. They were intrigued by the various approaches of using blended learning tools in the courses, but some participants felt that developing online learning activities required an additional workload, and some reported negative feedback from the students. These factors should be included in future planning and implementation of blended learning. Prof. LIM, Cher Ping, PI of the BOLT project, highlighted that the primary purpose of the TEL-Hub office is to provide blended learning support for our academic and teaching staff.
