The courses are delivered by distance education. The use of online technologies enriches the learning experience and provides participants with the flexibility to integrate and manage their study and professional commitments. Online delivery also facilitates communication, work and networking with supervisors, fellow participants and international professional experts introduced in the programme.
Once you enroll as a participant, you will receive Internet access information and an email account. For each course, detailed study materials including lecture notes, sets of readings and assessment tasks will be provided via a dedicated online programme website. Our lecture streaming service will provide you with online access to narrated presentations for all of the courses.
Online coursework is supported through communication with academic staff by Facebook, Skype, telephone, email and discussion boards. As a participant you will also have access to support offered by a number of service providers within The Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) including the Library, the Department of Education Policy and Leadership (EPL), and the Asia Pacific Centre for Leadership and Change (APCLC).
