Generic Introduction to Teaching at CityU for New Faculty

Have you recently joined the faculty at CityU? Would you like to know more about teaching CityU students? A Generic Introduction to Teaching at CityU for New Faculty will get you acquainted with the educational context and approaches at CityU.

In this online module you will learn some important information about the background of our students, how they live, the challenges they face, and how we can help them to make the most of their undergraduate studies at CityU. You will also get an overview of the outcome based teaching and learning approach used at CityU; an introduction to the Discovery-enriched Curriculum at CityU; and information about further resources available to you as you grow into your teaching as new faculty at CityU.

The module video is about 12 minute long. Participants will be asked to take a mini-quiz before they start the module and a mini-quiz at the end of the module. A digital badge and a Certificate of Completion will be awarded to those who successfully complete the module.

Note: During the transitional period (January - March 2018), registrants may retake the post-quiz until they obtain a score of 70% or better, in order to obtain a badge (“Completion”) and then proceed if they wish to the final assignment (“Completion with Honours”).
