Maisy Ho Centre for Teaching and Learning

The Maisy Ho Centre for Teaching and Learning was established in August 2018, and named after Ms Maisy Ho BBS to honour her generous donation to HKU SPACE.

Our Vision

The vision of the centre is to become the leading teaching and learning centre for professional education in Hong Kong by supporting, improving, and enhancing the pedagogical and technological skills and knowledge of the teachers at HKU SPACE and providing carefully curated induction training and professional development activities to teachers. The Maisy Ho Centre for Teaching and Learning also endeavours to develop discipline-specific pedagogies that target both young adults (full-time learners) and working adults (part-time learners) through consultation and collaboration with teaching practitioners of different disciplines from local and international universities and institutions. The centre also promotes quality teaching and learning practices at HKU SPACE by reinforcing and enhancing the current quality assurance framework and process.

Our Mission

In its goal to become a leading teaching and learning centre for professional education, the Maisy Ho Centre for Teaching and Learning will organise conferences and a variety of courses, talks, seminars and workshops and host a website that will provide downloadable reference materials, resources, and recorded talks and seminars  that can be widely shared among the teachers at HKU SPACE. The centre is also actively involved in the programme outcome assessment exercise to help enhance the current quality assurance process at HKU SPACE. Finally, the centre also administers the Outstanding Teacher Award which seeks to identify and reward exemplary teachers from the ‘bottom up’ and appreciate as well as acknowledge their efforts.
