Mr David Lee and Mr David Bishop receive HKU Teaching Innovation Award 2019
On December 10, 2019, the Vice-President and Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Teaching and Learning) announced the recipients of the University’s Teaching Excellence Awards 2019. Mr David Lee and Mr David Bishop in the Faculty of Business and Economics received the HKU Teaching Innovation Award (Team Award) for FinTech Ethics & Risk (HKUx’s FinTech Massive Online Open Course).
This 6-week online course covers 6 modules, representing the full spectrum of finance, technology, and the introduction of FinTech solutions globally. Unlike many online courses which rely on traditional and lecturer focused teaching, transformational learning and active learning form the core pillars of this high informative and interactive MOOC, allowing learners to understand and debate the influence that new technologies would have. Since its launch in May 2019, the course has attracted 7,000+ students from over 160 different countries/jurisdictions.
