You are invited to participate in the CITE Research Symposium (CITERS 2018) on 9 June 2018 (Saturday) at Rayson Huang Theatre, The University of Hong Kong. This year, CITERS is organized by the Centre for Information Technology in Education of the University of Hong Kong in collaboration with the Technology-Enriched Learning Initiative (TELI), the Libraries of the University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Education City (HKEdCity). 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 Learning & Empowering Change”. There are six sub-themes, which are (1) Adaptive learning; (2) Digital citizenship; (3) Computational thinking; (4) STEM education; (5) Technology and social change; (6) Learning design and learning analytics. The symposium will feature sessions on a broad range of topics related to the above theme and sub-themes. In addition to invited keynote speeches and paper presentations, there will also be experience sharing panels, hands-on demonstrations and discussion forums. Symposium activities are organized as a one-day event. There will be keynotes and parallel sessions on e-Learning, including introductions to CITE projects that focus on various areas such as self-directed learning (SDL) in the STEM, digital citizenship as well as e-Learning implementation in schools.
CITERS 2018 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.
