Award Citation
Since Dr Jason K K Chan took up teaching in 2014, he has been determined to make his Chemistry courses a central element of his students' education at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). To demonstrate basic principles and theory, he puts together exciting demonstrations, engaging experiments, animated video clips and experiential learning to form an efficacious compound with a motivational effect on students. Dr Chan's passion for pedagogy and for Chemistry extends beyond the campus of HKUST. He appears on television, in schools and in the community. He always shares his love for his subject with others and seeks to engage, involve in and educate others about Chemistry. Dr Chan will use the award grant to develop a new undergraduate experiential learning course focused on studying the soundness of scientific matters with societal relevance in Hong Kong.
