About the Series

Recently, blended and flexible learning may be considered a new “norm” of course delivery, which embraces a combination of traditional face-to-face teaching and online instruction to create a hybrid learning environment. The Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT) is pleased to invite Professor Gwo-Jen Hwang from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology to share with the participants on how this new teaching approach can improve student’s engagement in the classroom. This seminar aims to introduce strategies and tools for planning and developing effective blended learning activities. He will also share the experience of promoting mobile technology-enhanced blended learning in Taiwan. A hands-on workshop will also be provided to develop technology-enhanced activities and interactive learning materials based on two knowledge construction strategies and they are: (1) concept mapping; (2) grid-based element classifying.

Learning Outcomes

  • Develop interactive activity with the concept mapping and grid-based element classifying strategies; and
  • Design technology-enhanced learning activities to engage learners in higher order thinking and effective learning.
     

About the speaker

Prof. Gwo-Jen Hwang is the pioneer of technology-enhanced learning in Taiwan. In addition to publishing more than 550 papers related to e-learning, he is the principal investigator of the Taiwan mobile learning promotion program for high schools. Till now, more than 50 schools with 100000 students and 1000 teachers participate the program using the learning strategies developed by Prof. Hwang. Owing to his reputation in academic research and innovative inventions in e-learning, he received the annual most Outstanding Researcher Award from the National Science Council of Taiwan in the year of 2007, 2010 and 2013. Moreover, based on the statistics of the publications from 2011-2015, the Times World University Ranking has announced that Prof. Hwang is the most prolific and most cited researchers in the field of social sciences in the world.

Dr. Chiu-Lin Lai is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Graduate Institute of Digital Learning and Education, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, Taiwan. Her research interests include learning behavioral analysis, computer-assisted learning, self-regulated learning and mobile and ubiquitous learning. Dr. Lai is an experienced tutor of technology-enhanced learning design, courseware development and behavioral analysis. She has been invited to serve as the co-principal investigator of the Taiwan Mobile Learning Promotion Program for High Schools since 2013. She has also been invited to deliver training courses of technology-enhanced learning design and digital learning material development in several countries and areas, such as Thailand, China and Hong Kong.

Dr. Hui-Chun Chu received her Ph.D. degree from of the Department of Information and Learning Technology at National University of Tainan in Taiwan in July, 2009. Dr. Chu serves as an editorial board member and a reviewer for more than 15 academic journals. Her research interests include mobile and ubiquitous learning, game-based learning, information technology-applied instructions, flipped learning and knowledge engineering in education. Dr. Chu has published more than 100 academic papers, including 50 academic journal papers, in which 23 papers were published in well-recognized SSCI journals. Owing to the distinguished academic performance and service in e-learning, she received the Annual Young Scholars Outstanding Researcher Award–Ta-You Wu Memorial Award from the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2014. In addition, she has been invited to serve as the chair of Taiwan “classroom, ubiquitous, and mobile technologies-enhanced learning” Special Interest Group (CUMTEL SIG)” since 2015 and the Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies (SSCI) since 2013. She has also served as the guest editor of Interactive Learning Environments (SSCI) in 2013 and 2016.
