The vision of the centre is to become the leading teaching and learning centre for professional education in Hong Kong by supporting, improving, and enhancing the pedagogical and technological skills and knowledge of the teachers at HKU SPACE and providing carefully curated induction training and professional development activities to practitioners/teachers. The Maisy Ho Centre for Teaching and Learning also endeavours to develop discipline-specific pedagogies that target both young adults (full-time learners) and working adults (part-time learners) through consultation with teaching practitioners of different disciplines, local and international professionals, and the academia to share their specific and unique teaching philosophies, pedagogies and practices. The centre also promotes quality teaching and learning practices at HKU SPACE by reinforcing and enhancing the current quality assurance framework and process.
In its goal to become a leading teaching and learning centre for professional education, the Maisy Ho Centre for Teaching and Learning will organise conferences and a variety of talks, seminars and workshops and host a website that will provide downloadable reference materials, resources and recorded talks and lectures that can be widely shared among the teachers at HKU SPACE. The centre is also actively involved in the programme outcome assessment exercise to help enhance the current quality assurance process at HKU SPACE. Finally, the centre also administers the Outstanding Teacher Award which seeks to identify and reward exemplary teachers from the ‘bottom up’ and appreciate as well as acknowledge their efforts.
