AbstractThis cross-university collaborative project involves all five UGC-funded social work programs in Hong Kong to develop a reflection-based, user-oriented pedagogical model for social work education. The model adopts a blended approach as an innovative, ground-up response to current challenges in social work education, including limited opportunities for discussion due to increased curricular content, lecture-based teaching that restricts reflection, and the need for social work learning that balances local and international contexts. The project uses the newly available technologies to integrate online and traditional face-to-face learning, and adopting blended learning strategies to develop a reflection-based, user-oriented pedagogical model for social work education in Hong Kong.
The workshop shares our newly developed online teaching tools (e.g. teaching videos, animations, flipped classroom materials, VR etc.)

Presentation 1:
