In order to stay competitive and relevant in the rapidly changing and globalized world, it is imperative for higher education to equip students with the 21st century skills, including critical and analytical thinking, professionalism, effective communication, creativity, innovation, and the ability to create, learn, transmit and transfer new knowledge. Higher education communities across the globe have put extensive efforts on developing and implementing new curriculum, in alignment with the changing educational objectives, and in preparation to equip students with the ideal graduate competency. At City University of Hong Kong (CityU), students are provided ample opportunities to make original discoveries through active learning and knowledge creation. As a result of the concerted efforts of the University community, the University received the University Grants Committee’s (UGC) 2017 Team Award for Teaching Excellence.
