Award Citation
Dr Tushar Chaudhuri is committed to diversification and internationalisation of students' learning experience through innovative teaching programmes and international projects, as well as creative use of cutting edge technologies. Through the online telecollaborative projects, he combines language education with global topics, such as sustainable urban development. These projects have reached and impacted over 1 000 secondary and tertiary students, who have been connected to more than 15 universities and over 25 schools in Hong Kong and Europe. The learning experiences have greatly enhanced students' sense of global awareness and intercultural understanding. Dr Chaudhuri will use the award grant to set up a multi-institutional Community of Practice to provide a platform for multiple initiatives on technology-enhanced language education in the Greater Bay Area.
