Conference on technology and educational practices


All across the globe academics and education administrators are looking for ways to raise the quality of teaching and learning with the help of technology. The inaugural International Conference on Technology in Education (ICTE), held on 2–4 July on OUHK campus, served as a platform for relevant academic exchanges for representatives from local and overseas higher education institutions, focusing especially on the sharing of best practices and results from studies. OUHK President Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong and Council member Dr Gerald Siu kicked-off the three-day event. The conference, on the theme of ‘Transforming Educational Practices with Technology’, was co-organized with the School of Professional and Continuing Education of the University of Hong Kong and the Caritas Institute of Higher Education, and consisted of keynote speeches, seminars, sharing sessions and IT application workshops.
