Idea Incubator Scheme
Building the CityU DEC
- EDGE’s role in DEC
The Interdisciplinary Professional Development Awards (IPDA) Scheme encourages and facilitates the development of interdisciplinary Gateway Education (GE) courses and research initiatives that promote discovery, innovation, and creativity. The Scheme supports the DEC.
The design of the IPDA course should adopt the outcomes-based teaching and learning framework and align with the intended GE programme learning outcomes. Evidence of students’ achievement of the knowledge and skill-based outcomes will depend on further alignment of the teaching and learning activities designed to develop these outcomes in students and the formative and summative assessment tasks for their effective evaluation.
Lawyers today need to build a broad knowledge base and embrace mobile communication technology to effect quality legal service. The law faculty supports the Scheme with great enthusiasm.
CityU is extending our Blackboard e-learning platform to support mobile learning and social learning. Our e-learning strategy is to provide a technology-rich environment that empowers students to take charge of their own learning. Our new mobile-learning tools allow students to share and collaborate anytime anywhere, both in class as well as out-of-class. It also enables teachers to take advantage of innovative pedagogy to develop students’ potential and whet their appetite for discovery. The incorporation of mobile learning and social learning into our students’ learning experience greatly enhances their quality of education.
