浸大教與學項目奪國際殊榮 HKBU teaching and learning initiatives receive international recognition

Biology students of BIOL2017 Cell Biology participated in the “Mobile Augmented Reality (AR) Learning Trails” activity in 2019 and 2021, which was one of the key components of the project that won the Silver award in the QS Wharton Reimagine Education Awards in the Virtual/augmented reality category.
As a part of this project, 20 mobile games were prepared with a theme of “Food and Cancer”. A total of 562 students from 10 secondary schools had explored the mobile games.






「Blue Sparrow兒童電子英詩文集」計劃奪得本年度被譽為教育界奧斯卡的Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) 華頓教學創新獎銀獎。該計劃開發出一個多平台詩歌閱讀應用程式,讓學校推廣詩歌閱讀練習,數碼平台上的詩歌亦是教師培訓課程中的培訓工具。計劃團隊由教育學系助理教授陳恒博士領導,其他成員來自教育學系及語文中心。 




上述兩個項目是從比賽中16個組別 的1,100個參賽項目中脫穎而出。



HKBU has earned three top honours from two international award schemes for its innovative teaching and learning initiatives.

“The Blue Sparrow English Poetry for Learners and Teachers” project, which developed a multi-platform poetry e-corpus to promote poetry-reading practices in schools as well as digital poetry as praxis in teacher training courses, received the Silver Award at this year’s Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) – Wharton Reimagine Education Awards, which are also known as the “Oscars of Education”. The project team was led by Dr Joshua Chan, Assistant Professor of the Department of Education Studies (EDUC), and it was composed of members from the EDUC and the Language Centre. 

At the same awards, the cross-departmental, cross-institutional project “Sustaining Academic Integrity and Ethics (AIE) in Students through Mobile Augmented Reality (AR) Learning Trails”, which was led by the Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning (CHTL), was honoured with the Silver Award in the Virtual/Augmented Reality category. The project combines AR and mobile technology to create a blended learning environment for students, and it motivates them to continue their learning of AIE. 

These two projects were selected from 1,100 applications spread across 16 categories at the QS-Wharton Reimagine Education Awards.

Meanwhile, among the 44 proposals submitted to the eLearning Forum Asia (eLFA) Awards 2021, CHTL’s “Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) eTournaments” project was chosen as the winner of the Silver Award in the Community Outreach category. Each eTournament is a gamified, challenge-based learning activity that raises students’ awareness of the SDGs. Since 2019, the eTournaments have attracted the participation of more than 1,750 students from 59 home regions.
