This online workshop will host the team discussions and other activities to support the project titled "Sustainable Asia: Our Vision, Our Future"
This project examines (1) how teachers perceive and instruct global education in international schools and local schools in Hong Kong, New York and Singapore; (2) what societal and institutional factors constrain and promote teachers’ instruction of global education; and (3) what ideologies are embedded in teachers’ conceptions and instruction of global education.
This course will develop knowledge and skills in producing virtual learning environments for schools and organizations. Dimensions of blended learning will be explored from kindergarten through adult, distance learning, web-based training, constructivist and flexible approaches to learning at educational institutions, at home and in the workplace.
This module was developed to provide a deeper understanding of practice-oriented, pedagogy-driven and theory-based framework for e-learning design and practice through case studies of students’ e-Learning experiences and learning outcomes. The module will highlight the inadequacies of “technology-centric” models of e-Learning and the interactions between the affordances of e-Learning technologies, pedagogical models, instructional strategies, learning theories, and e-learning design to achieve transformative pedagogical practice. Module participants will gain a deeper insight on how people learn in various e-learning settings including schools, workplaces, and our everyday world through a case-based approach. This module aims to provide participants with a solid theoretical and pedagogical foundation to e-learning design and implementation in different settings. This module will be taught from three perspectives: learning theory, e-Learning technology tools, and a hands-on workshop exploring and creating learning activities with those tools.
This course will organize the Knowledge Transfer project, with PI Prof Michael Ingham and instructor Chan, Wing Yee (Constance), and consultant Brant Knutzen.
- Lingnan University students will be trained on the method of introducing students to the virtual world as part of developing digital competency skills.
- LU students will host secondary students at Lingnan to introduce them to the virtual world of Second Life.
- All participants may be surveyed for their opinions and attitudes towards the virtual world.

This course will
introduce participants to the impact that an idealized virtual identity and the
perception of a social constructivist environment have on learning within the
virtual world. Gamified learning as a
group process will be explored, and data collected on affective issues such as
beliefs and attitude towards: the self, the technology, the learning
experience, and self-efficacy. This
project seeks to develop a methodology for focusing a survey on specific
behaviors using the virtual world through tight integration with simulated
