College Teaching Excellence Award 2015

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to announce that the winner of the 2015 College Teaching Excellence Award (CTEA) is Dr Andy Kwan (Department of Management). 

CB is committed to fostering a culture of teaching excellence as well as a caring learning environment for our students and has established this teaching award scheme to recognize the very best teachers in the College. Competition has been strong this year. The Selection Committee highly commended the quality of applications received in this round and that the winning entry demonstrated teaching work of exemplary professional practice:

Dr Andy Kwan is a dedicated teacher who continuously seeks professional development to improve himself and transfer newly acquired skills and knowledge into teaching.  He actively supports the development of students through well thought-out activities both inside and outside of the classroom.  He has made solid contributions to the building of a discovery-enriched curriculum, drawing resources from the University’s Teaching Development Grant.

Taking this opportunity, I would like to thank the CTEA Selection Committee comprising Professor Julie Li (Chair), Professor Muammer Ozer and Dr Raymond Wong, and all colleagues for participating in the award scheme, and for helping build the vibrant teaching culture in the College that we so much value. We welcome your participation again next year!

Last but not least, a special note of thanks goes to our benefactor Jenny Chan for her generous donation which has made the establishment of this teaching excellence award possible.
