Teaching with Technology in the Social Sciences

    Research output: Book/ReportBook or reportpeer-review


    In 2021, the University Grants Committee of Hong Kong, the funding body for higher education in Hong Kong, initiated a scheme and associated grant fund with the aim of enhancing the use of technology for teaching in higher education institutions in Hong Kong. In the Faculty of Social Sciences, Hong Kong Baptist University, the funding was used to support colleagues in various disciplines to develop teaching and learning projects that capitalized on technology to improve the educational experiences of students. In this book, seven project teams from five disciplines, Education, Geography, History, Social Work, and Sociology, share their technological innovations. Each chapter presents the design, implementation, challenges, benefits, and impact on student learning and experiences of each innovative project. Lecturers, professors and curriculum designers engaged in teaching and learning will find this book an invaluable resource as it provides ways to integrate technology into their teaching practices. Scholars of teaching and learning (SoTL) will also find the book a useful reference for up-to-date technological and pedagogical practices in the social science disciplines.
