Professor LIU Zhi-qiang

Recipient of 2012 UGC Teaching Award

Affiliation at the time of the award
Professor, School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong

Award Citation
Professor Liu has pioneered innovative co-curricular activities - Special Interest Groups - to provide his students with up-to-date applied experiences and long-term professional work in the field of creative media. The Groups ensure peer mentorship and feedback as well as collaboration among teams of students. Beyond these Groups, Professor Liu initiated the annual "Playful Media" and "Industry Nights" for students to exhibit publicly their work and to build entrepreneurship. These make learning at once fun and productive. The students' engagement in these co-curricular activities has been as intensive as the external recognition of their work has been extensive.

Professor Liu plans to spend the award grant to engage other Colleges, Faculties and Schools in the City University of Hong Kong and other institutions into these Groups.
