The Blended & Online Learning & Teaching (BOLT) Project is a UGC-funded collaboration in which participating Hong Kong tertiary institutions look at developing online teaching and learning in Hong Kong. The project includes multiple different approaches, ranging from initiatives within a particular institution – such as The Education University of Hong Kong’s grassroots approach to developing blended learning in a faculty, and Baptist University’s Faculty Professional Development Series of workshops – to more central elements, such as the BOLT foundation course, led by Hong Kong Polytechnic University and open to teachers from all participating universities.
On 31 October, 2016, BOLT hosted an event for educators at CUHK in partnership with CLEAR and KEEP to share about blended learning pedagogies and learnings. Sharings from Professor Lim Cher Ping, Darren Harbutt, Veronika Schoeb, and David Watson were received well by the group. Professor Irwin King and Paul Lam also gave introductory remarks to bring together the eLearning efforts.
