Invitation to attend
CITE Research Symposium 2016
‘Engaging Learners: Games and Flipped Learning’
3-4 June 2016 (Fri & Sat)
Rayson Huang Theatre, The University of Hong Kong
You are invited to participate in the CITE Research Symposium (CITERS 2016) on 3-4 June 2016 (Friday & Saturday) at Rayson Huang Theatre, The University of Hong Kong. This year’s CITERS is organized by the Centre for Information Technology in Education of the University of Hong Kong (CITE), in collaboration with Centre for Advancement in Inclusive and Special Education (CAISE), Centre for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) and the Libraries of the University of Hong Kong. The goal of the symposium is to discuss recent research, share good educational practices, and new technologies, with a view to furthering research and practice that support learning with IT. It also provides a platform for the presentation and sharing of outcomes from research and development work conducted by practitioners and researchers to advance our knowledge and understanding of the many issues related to technology-supported learning and teaching.
The symposium’s main theme is ‘Engaging Learners: Games and Flipped Learning’. There are two sub-themes, which are (1) Effects of games or gamification; and (2) Impact of flipped learning. The symposium will feature sessions on a broad range of topics related to the Symposium theme and subthemes. In addition to invited speakers and paper presentations, there will also be experience sharing panels, hands-on demonstrations and discussion forums. Symposium activities are organized as a two-day event. On each day, there will be keynotes addressing games and flipped learning, and parallel sessions on e-Learning, including introductions to CITE projects that focus on various areas such as self-directed learning (SDL) in the Science KLA, as well as e-Learning implementation in schools.
CITERS 2016 is designed to be of interest and relevance to academics and research students in tertiary institutions, school principals and teachers from local and international schools, school administrators, librarians, government officials, publishers of educational resources and e-Learning related industries, and interested members of the community. The program rundown and details about CITERS 2016 can be obtained from http://citers2016.cite.hku.hk.
