The rise of online and mixed-mode teaching enables the delivery of educational materials to wider populations than possible when restricted to the physical classroom.
This raises new challenges in engineering education, where significant components of learning are hands-on, e.g. in laboratories.
Current platforms for online learning, e.g. Zoom, are not able to adequately address this. The Department of Electronic & Computer Engineering at HKUST is seeking developers to develop technology and materials supporting online and mixed-mode teaching of courses traditionally taught in on-campus laboratories, such as online platforms enabling access to and experimentation with physical equipment located remotely from the students, and low-cost setup that can be distributed directly to individual students.
The appointees will assist in the development of course materials to support mixed-mode teaching. Major duties include the development of materials enabling the online delivery of engineering course content, including online laboratories, as well as the development of materials enabling students to perform experiments at home, and make good use of new teaching methodology / technology.
As part of their role in developing course materials, the appointees may also assist in collecting course feedback and further developing the materials based on course feedback.
and a good command of spoken and written English are required. Fresh graduates will also be considered. (Duration : 1 year)
Fringe benefits including annual leave, medical and dental benefits will be provided where applicable.
Review of applications will begin on Friday, 23 April 2021 and continue until the positions are filled.
