The Hong Kong (HK) EmployABILITY thinking roadshow 2018 from 6 to 9 March was described by HERDSA HK executives as “a huge success”. Dawn presented workshops on Enhancing EmployABILITY and a session on critical reflection at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Baptist University and The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. Approximately 200 colleagues from the eight universities and higher education institutes attended. According to HERDSA’s Hong Kong president, Dr Anna Kwan:
Colleagues reported that the Roadshow had inspired them to think more about linking their work to equipping students’ employability. They appreciated the explicit examples of different disciplines and actual examples of how “small things” can be done to arouse student awareness within the curriculum. The rich resources developed for students and instructors were particularly admirable.
Our thanks go to the HERDSA executive and hosting colleagues for making the Roadshow possible.
