Director of Knowledge Management and Innovation Research Centre within The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and a professor at the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering within the same institution, Eric Tsui has been a recipient of several international awards in Knowledge Management and E-Learning and will be a guest speaker at this year’s Blackboard Teaching & Learning Conference Asia 2018 (TLC Asia 18). At the event, taking place in Singapore this coming October, Eric will talk about the many challenges and opportunities associated with networked learning, such as the necessary shift for learning environments from a teacher-centric server-based in-house systems, to ubiquitous cloud-based learner-centric services.
To excel in networked learning, Eric believes students need to learn from multiple sources – with flexible and dynamic boundaries transcending beyond the walls of the classroom –, peer-based social, lifelong practices need to be routinised, and new pedagogies need to be introduced to incorporate feedback and integrate quality input from learners.
At TLC Asia 18, Eric’s talk will highlight some of the significant efforts carried out at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) to enhance the learning experience and outcomes of students, teachers and graduates. Before the event takes place, the director sat down with E-Learn to give us a preview of his highly-anticipated chat. Take a look below.
