About the Programme

The Induction Training for SHAPE teaching staff programme is offered by the Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT).  This 6-hour programme aims at providing new SHAPE teaching staff with a better understanding of current educational trends in Hong Kong and issues related to learning and teaching of VTC’s collaborative learning programmes.

    • provide a platform for new teachers to network and build support and commitment
    • value oneself as a teacher and approach teaching in a professional and reflective way
    • be more attuned to VTC’s philosophy about learning and teaching

    • discuss the implications for learning and teaching in relation to current changes in education
    • engage in active discussions on the learning styles of students studying collaborative learning programmes
    • identify effective approaches to motivate and enhance student learning
    • foster relationships and promote mutual support among teaching staff who share similar pedagogical interests


  • The Induction Training for SHAPE teaching staff is a voluntary programme for all new SHAPE teaching staff with full-time or part-time teaching responsibilities of collaborative learning programmes.
