Dissemination Seminar on Thematic Network on English Language

The Centre for Enhancing English Learning and Teaching (CEELT) of the Faculty of Education organized a dissemination seminar on the project entitled 'Quality Education Fund Thematic Network (QTN) on English Language (Primary) 2013–14' (commissioned by the Quality Education Fund of the HKSAR Government) on 13 June to celebrate the success of the first implementation year of the QTN. The seminar focused on sharing the effectiveness of the resource package produced by the CEELT in 2013, and on facilitating school-based English curriculum development and enhancing teachers' professionalism. The dissemination seminar attracted near 100 attendees.

Prof. Barley Mak, director of CEELT and QTN Project team leader, delivered a keynote speech on 'Effective use of reading materials to arouse learners' creativity', highlighting the importance of fostering students' creativity in reading lessons through using different kinds of texts. A parallel sharing session was conducted by each of the three core schools of the QTN, in which the English teachers shared their experiences on the application of the resource package and views on its sustainability in promoting quality English language education in Hong Kong primary schools.
