Teacher Professional Development

Higher applied education is facing both opportunities and challenges of digitalization, AI and the uncertainty of globalization. The visions, capacities and competencies of teachers are crucial to the transformation of the sector. The Teacher Professional Development affinity group aims to build up a platform for teachers to communicate, exchange and learn from each other, through a series of facilitated activities, including but not limited to exchanges, webinars, joint research and papers, training workshops, industry experience, shadowing and site visits and lifelong learning. The group proposes two categories of Award of Excellence, for institutions that demonstrate excellence in teacher professional development, and for individual teachers who are excellent in innovative, creative and dedicated teaching and learning.
