The “Academic Integrity and Ethics-Augmented Reality” (AIE-AR) project, led by the Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning (CHTL), received the Second Class Prize of the 2022 National Teaching Achievement Award (Higher Education) launched by the Ministry of Education.
AIE-AR introduces a unique pedagogy that uses augmented reality to present case-based scenarios of abstract issues of academic integrity and ethics. The project team was led by Dr Eva Wong, Consultant of CHTL. Team members include Dr Theresa Kwong, Director of CHTL; Professor Cheung Siu-yin, Emeritus Professor of the Department of Sport, Physical Education and Health; Dr Patrick Yue, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Biology, Dr Gary Ho, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Chemistry; and collaborators from the Education University of Hong Kong and The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
On the other hand, the Joint University Mental-Wellness Project, with Professor Daniel Wong Fu-keung, Chair Professor and Dr Pan Jiayan, Associate Professor of the Department of Social Work as project team members, also won the Second Class Prize. The Project provides both formal and informal learning opportunities to develop students’ potential and help them explore the meaning of life through a transformational learning pedagogy in positive education.
