QESS Project Develops the First VPET Open Online Learning and Teaching Platform in Hong Kong

Development of Effective Pedagogical Practices and a Cross-institutional Online Sharing Platform for Hong Kong's Vocational Education and Training (VET) is a cross-institutional project funded by the Quality Enhancement Support Scheme (QESS) of the Education Bureau. This 3-year Project signifies a collaborative effort of Vocational Training Council (VTC), The Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK), Caritas Institute of Higher Education (CIHE) and Caritas Bianchi College of Careers (CBCC) to raise the awareness and interests towards vocational and professional education and training (VPET) and recognition of its value. We are pleased that the Project is now nearing completion and the Project deliverables will be presented in late August 2018.  

VPETCity-Online Learning and Teaching Platform 

Our Project features the first open online learning and teaching platform, VPETCity (https://vpetcity.vtc.edu.hk) in Hong Kong for network building and sharing of Teaching and Learning Package Exemplars for the VPET community. These exemplars are based on current VPET modules and repackaged with multimedia and technology enhanced learning components that enrich flexible and mobile learning. They are excellent for students to explore the subject of interest for articulation possibility and self-learning. The contents are also open for integration into one's own teaching and training where appropriate.

本項目建立了香港首個開放的網上學與教資源共享平台VPETCity (https://vpetcity.vtc.edu.hk),以協助不同院校的學生、老師及職場導師建立網絡、交流及分享優質的教材和教學方法,從而提高本地職業專才教育的水平。我們選取現有的職業專才教育單元,運用多媒體和科技增潤教育的元素重新包裝成多媒體教材套範本,以加強靈活學習和行動學習。學生可透過這些教材套,研習自己感興趣的科目,並探索修讀有關科目的可能性。而老師及職場導師亦可適當地在自己的教學和培訓中,採用這些屬於開放教育資源的教材。




本項目的發表會暨展覽將於本年八月二十四日﹙星期五﹚假香港知專設計學院演講廳A001舉行。屆時我們特別邀請教育界講者和相關業界代表到場共襄盛舉,並向參與的公眾介紹及展示我們的項目成果。我們誠邀您出席,與我們一起共享喜悅,支持本地職業專才教育。有關項目發報會暨展覽的詳情將於日內公佈。 請密切留意我們消息。
