This article is the reflection of the author’s experience in planning and development of a teaching development project on piloting a new teaching mode of mass lecture-tutorial in three core modules of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction which was supported by a departmental Teaching Development Grant during 20 July 2006 to 31 Aug 2007. Describing this teaching initiative within the issue of quality concern in higher education, the article recalls how the author sought to identify the initiative as a teaching enhancement activity which carries the features of encouraging teachers towards higher quality practices, with the expectation of a knock-on effect on other staff members in the department; and how the author rationalized this project type event as a professional inquiry into a social practice in which a whole range of human issues should be considered to reach for good practices, instead of an investigation towards a technocratic-rational model to provide universal rules and answers which are often irresistible in the environment of higher education currently.
