In order to inspire students, we first strive to inspire their educators. Leveraging our partnership with MIT’s J-WEL and beyond, CEL created and facilitated various initiatives to expose educators to research-based pedagogy, cutting-edge innovations in local and international contexts. Examples include:
J-WEL Week & Exchange
Convening at MIT, educators from Hong Kong join a global learning community and are exposed to presentations, research briefs, hands-on exercises, and workshops on key education topics. Collaborating with MIT faculty and staff, they are challenged to define their key goals and mechanisms for implementation.
By bringing educators to visit innovative and exemplar schools in Hong Kong, Boston and beyond, we hope to expand their sense of what is possible, demystify the innovation process, and encourage them to implement new ideas in their own schools.
Professional Development Day
Co-organising the event with our Partner Schools, we hope to expand participants’ mindset on the possibilities of innovative teaching and learning, guide them to think about translating learnings in initiatives, and facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration within/amongst schools.
