38 teachers commended

Acting Chief Executive Paul Chan presented the Chief Executive’s Award for Teaching Excellence to 15 teachers at the Education Bureau Kowloon Tong Education Services Centre today.   Secretary for Education Kevin Yeung presented the Certificate of Merit to 23 teachers.   Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Chan expressed his heartfelt congratulations to the awarded teachers and thanked them for their dedicated efforts in education.   He encouraged teachers to actively participate in exchange activities with the Mainland and explained that through observation and exchanges, they could explore ways to improve teaching professionalism with outstanding senior teachers on the Mainland.   They can also use these opportunities to strengthen their understanding of the country’s politics, economy, society, history and culture, and then share their knowledge gained with colleagues and students, Mr Chan added.   There was a total of 121 and 104 nominations for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 awards.  

CE visits Lingnan University

Chief Executive Carrie Lam today visited Lingnan University to learn more about its promotion of gerontechnology in society as well as creative digital media learning.   Mrs Lam viewed gerontech products in relation to healthcare, dining, living and commuting at the university’s Jockey Club Gerontech-X Lab.   She also visited the Animation & Digital Arts Lab to find out how it encourages students to make use of digital equipment for creative work.   The Chief Executive then received a briefing on how the university motivates students and teaching staff to leverage technology and cross-sectoral collaboration to meet society’s needs, including through developing a reusable and transparent anti-COVID-19 face mask and a wheelchair handle sensoring system.   Noting that the nation’s 14th Five-Year Plan has stated for the first time the support for Hong Kong to develop as a hub for arts and cultural exchanges between China and the rest of the world, Mrs Lam said she believes the university can leverage its own advantages to contribute to the promotion of cultural exchanges.   “I also encourage Lingnan University to seize the opportunities brought about by the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to advance the university's development and nurture more talents for the bay area,” she added.
