The aim of Gateway Education (GE) programme is to augment and round out the specialised training students receive in their majors by enabling them to achieve a breadth of knowledge through exposure to multiple disciplines. Aligned with the mission, a technology-enriched active learning space, named Gateway Education Laboratory (GE Lab), was setup in 2012 for supporting active and collaborative learning. It allows students from different disciplines to work together under the GE umbrella. GE lab consists of an active learning classroom (ALC), a prototyping area, and a digital media production space. The ALC is highly configurable with movable tables, it equipped with running water facility and ventilation which are suitable for different type of active learning activities. While the prototyping area housed key equipment and facility to support students realizing their ideas and making functional prototypes, such as professional grade 3D printers, laser cutter/engraver, virtual reality equipment, electronic components library and prototyping platform. With the increasing demands of using digital media to support teaching and learning, Panopto Studio for self-recording and Chroma-Key Studio with professional shooting and lighting equipment are ready for educational video production.
GE Lab also provides a variety of services and supports for GE courses, please check our services here.
