Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures here.

Hope you have a nice stay!

Yidan Prize Conference Series: Asia-Pacific by HKU Faculty of Education

I attended Yidan Prize Conference Series: Asia-Pacific, co-organized by Yidan Prize Foundation and Faculty of Education, The University of Hong Kong today. You may also watch the streaming above.

Keynote Lecture 1 by Yidan Prize for Education Research Laureate 2018

Title: The Essential Role of Research Evidence in Education

Speaker: Professor Larry Hedges

  Chairman

  Department of Statistics

  Northwestern University, USA

 

Keynote Lecture 2 by Yidan Prize for Education Development Laureate 2018

Title: Reimagining Education

Speaker: Professor Anant Agarwal

  Founder and CEO

  edX

  Professor

  Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA


I am quite impressed by the edX business model and I have actually signed up a few classes. Being an ngo is certainly the best way to go and making the software as open source would help to scale up and create impact which serves the purpose!

Major take away from Professor Anant Agarwal for me is he stated that people need to learn how to learn online and also teach online! I totally agree with that as the future of education will be more towards online and self initiated. I am hoping Hong Kong would finally evolved to recognise this.
