The morning session of the Retreat was co-organised with the Asia Case Research Centre (ACRC), where the speaker, Mr. David Lee, demonstrated how he made use of his teaching case in classroom and shed light on diversity through the case. This hybrid session was also attended by participants from India, Bangladesh and Vietnam on Zoom.

The afternoon session focused on “Student Engagement” and “Feedback to Students & Communication on Assessment and Grading”.  Apart from inspiring sharing by award-winning and experienced teachers including Dr Matthias Buehlmaier, Dr Jinzhao Du, Professor Anna Wong and Dr Winnie Leung, participants were given questions for group discussion.  During the thought-provoking post-discussion sharing, the groups exchanged their views and best practices enthusiastically.
