Description:

Computer science is a fast evolving field in the modern world. A comparison between the syllabus of the current computing programme and the one we offered few years ago reveals a quantum leap in technology. In this fast-changing field, self-learning of new technology has become a fact of life of our students. In 2012, Dr. Chui introduced a curriculum innovation to apply a self-learning approach in teaching advanced technical courses. The course was an immediate success and became the fastest growing and highest rated course in the department. In this seminar Dr. Chui will share his experience in the pedagogical design, teaching and learning methodology and the use of Moodle as the eLearning and assessment platform to facilitate self-learning within and beyond his classroom.

It is a challenging task to guide every student in a large class (over 120 students in the 2nd semester of 2015/16) to self-learn a topic as they have diversified backgrounds and different learning pace. To help students to begin with, Dr. Chui designed a comprehensive set of learning materials on Moodle, providing clear instructions, explanations and directions that are suitable for the whole class. For each topic, Dr. Chui provided reading materials through Moodle, hands-on instructions with remote virtual network computing environment, as well as problem-solving tasks with auto grading and feedback functionalities. Dr. Chui believed that through self-learning training, students will acquire reading skill, hands-on skill and problem-solving skill, which are the core competencies for life-long learners.
