Invitation to your Students: Join the United Nations SDG International eTournament 2020
31 Dec 2019

Centre for Holistic Teaching and Learning of Hong Kong Baptist University is launching the United Nations SDG International eTournament 2020 and I write to ask for your assistance in encouraging your students, both in Hong Kong and in Australia, to join this interesting online game. Students at all levels and study modes are welcome.

This eTournament is part of our cross-institutional CCGame Project (http://ccgame.hkbu.edu.hk) which is funded by the University Grants Committee of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. The project aims to help students better prepare themselves to work in multidisciplinary and multicultural teams through gamification and challenge-based learning. We successfully launched the first United Nations SDG International eTournament in early 2019, which attracted 243 higher education student participants from 24 countries/regions. This second 2020 eTournament is open for registration NOW via http://ccgame.hkbu.edu.hk/sdg-etournament2020.

The prizes for the winning teams are attractive; please urge your students to join and NOT to miss the chance!

Registration closes 23:59 (Hong Kong Time, GMT +8), Tuesday 31 December 2019

For enquiries, please email to chtl@hkbu.edu.hk.
