Law Faculty members are involved in events concerning the scholarship of teaching and learning. Professor Rick Glofcheski was the recipient of the inaugural University Grants Committee Teaching Award. The award money will help to fund an international conference on Assessment for Learning in High Education to be held at HKU on 14-15 May 2015. The conference aims to provide a platform that brings together higher education experts, scholars, researchers, educators and students to share visions on assessment and feedback in higher education. The deadline for abstract submissions is 14 November 2014.
On Tuesday, 25 November 2014, James Fry will be speaking in the CETL's Teaching Development Grants Seminar Series on his 109-page report on the various plagiarism-related standards and penalties adopted by leading universities in the US, UK, Australia and Singapore. At the same seminar, Wilson Chow and Michael Ng will present their paper on an empirical study of the use of simulated clients to teach and assess the interviewing skills and communicative competence of HKU law students. The study involved 320 PCLL students who in 2013-14 participated in interviewing exercises with simulated clients.
