Repository of online resources for science and mathematics teaching and assessment

This ACDS project aims to create a repository of curated remote teaching and assessment resources developed across Faculties of Science, particularly those resources that would benefit teachers and students of large mainstream subjects.

The ACDS expects to support this repository to remain active in acquiring further resources following its establishment. Its processes of curation and review should promote wide discussion and shared understanding of the learning goals, pedagogies and evidence-based evaluation of the resources that it contains.

Have you developed a resource to support learning undergraduate science or mathematics online? Is this something you could share with other science educators?

The type of resource we are looking for include but are not limited to: lab activities and worksheets, lecture material, assessment tools, interactive learning modules, etc.

Please submit your resource here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeoEP52HeZphw928-Z6Y2Imfj5wLZ21....

Sharing of Socially Responsible Marketing (SRM) Course Materials

At the Department of Marketing of Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU), we believe that marketing professionals are in a position to have a positive impact on society. Our mission is to inspire and equip them to do so. The Socially Responsible Marketing (SRM) course was born as the first initiative in this endeavour and has then been offered at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. With a grant provided by HKBU, the team developed this SRM course website to share humbly the course materials we curated. We hope the contents shared on this website will be useful for fellow educators who wish to incorporate SRM elements into their teaching.
