To help secondary school teachers keep up with changes in the education system, City University (CityU) will conduct the Teachers Update Course (TUC) 2005 on campus from June 1 to July 8. With the theme 'Developing Reflective Professionals', this year's TUC comprises seminars and workshops in five areas: supporting change, preparing students for lifelong learning, promoting innovation, updating subject knowledge, and enriching school culture. The 'supporting change' programme is a new topic geared to the local education scene, which has recently undergone structural reforms that affect senior secondary and tertiary education. The programme aims to provide up-to-date information and skills to help teachers cope with changes in the teaching and learning environment. About 50 CityU academic and professional staff have volunteered to lead the TUC sessions, which are free of charge to secondary school teachers, school managers and administrators. The staff aim to exchange views with them about teaching and learning in Hong Kong. Last year, a total of 1,935 teachers from 373 secondary schools registered for the sessions. The sessions are expected to continue to draw enthusiastic interest from teachers this year. Almost half of the 2,000 TUC places were filled within two days after registration opened on May 10. The application deadline is Monday. For more information, visit tfq.cityu.edu.hk/tuc/index.jsp or call 3442 6727.
