Hongkong Benchmarking Educational Tour

I joined the PSITE National Board Hongkong Benchmarking Educational Tour last January 03-06, 2013. We visited the office of the Hongkong Computer Society, The University of Hongkong and the Hongkong University of Science and Technology.

The primary purpose of the educational tour is to learn more about Hongkong Universities, its systems, processes and outstanding performance being regarded as a University of world-class standing. During the visit, the group discussed and shared university administrative knowledge particularly on the Outcomes-Based Education (OBE) framework as well as the basic criteria for excellence to help us make baseline assessment of current practices.

Along with the above objectives, the group was much interested to experience the University’s historical architecture and to take a walk in its literary footsteps and learn its Information and Communication Technology (ICT) innovations.
