The project aims to engage students directly in the learning and teaching experience through establishing different Student Network Groups at the Institute. Students will either lead a project by their own, or to carry out the project in collaborations with their teachers on their interested topics. In the long run, if the SNG is found effective at the Institute, projects can be moved from teacher-driven to student-driven/teacher-student partnership and it is believed that both teachers and students will benefit from this new way of learning and teaching process.
There are four sub-projects:
1. Multi-level primary science/ environmental education programme
2. International Postgraduate Student Summer School in Education, Social Sciences, Liberal Arts and Humanities 2016
3. Student Network Group for mobile learning of the English Language
4. Developing pedagogical materials and activities in practical Chinese Writing for community engagement
