The Communities of Practice on Discovery & Innovation (D&I)

The Communities of Practice (CoP) on Discovery & Innovation (D&I) aims to enhance the teaching and learning culture in City University of Hong Kong to support the “Discovery-enriched Curriculum(DEC)” as initiated through the Academic Development Proposal 2012-15 (ADP). Efforts will be focused on developing pedagogical and assessment strategies and building the capacity of staff and students in D&I. Professional development of staff and whole person development of students will be addressed. The final goal is to enhance the three A’s in D&I learning, namely, positive Attitude toward D&I, Ability to do innovation, and Accomplishment in D&I. To accomplish the abovementioned objectives, an e-platform will be established and a series of seminars and sharing activities will be organized for both teachers and/or students. Members sharing with others on D&I will be given incentives such as conference support, student activity support and recognition of such activities under the education domain in the annual PBPR. The future plan is to expand this CoP to members outside of CityU.
