Development of students’ global and cross-cultural perspectives has become increasingly important in today’s highly globalised world. Most universities nowadays offer a variety of overseas learning and exchange programmes to pursue this end, through which students can experience an array of different cultural and community perspectives, gain additional knowledge, enhance language abilities and pursue self-development.
This workshop arises from an IICAs (Inter-institutional Collaborative Activities) Project under the VTL Grant led by CUHK – “Establishing Effective Virtual Teaching Strategies to Support Learning beyond Classroom”, in which one initiative about creation of new collaborative chances for students’ interdisciplinary, inter-cultural and exchange learning is led by HKBU. In this workshop, four experts from CityU, CUHK, HKBU, HKUST are invited to share their respective experiences at course, project and institutional level, which are all innovative and outside-the-box practices.
