The University’s e-Learning Strategy was updated in 2017 to outline HKUST’s underpinning pedagogical approach to e-Learning and set out the atmosphere and landscape to encourage and nourish the growth of blended learning teaching.

The impact of the COVID pandemic on the tertiary education sector has been substantial. HKUST’s experience of switching to online delivery in 2019/20 has boosted the growth of digital approaches to teaching, learning and assessment, with almost all courses having a parallel digital footprint. Under this new normal, the eLearning Strategy 2022-2025 is further adjusted to align with global trends.

The updated Strategy is designed to encourage the digital transformation of teaching and learning that:

  • is innovative and pedagogically sound;
  • sustains current best-practices in approaches to e-Learning and digital education;
  • assures the maintenance of HKUST’s academic standards;
  • upholds the "Unified HKUST-Complementary Campuses umbrella" by enabling cross-campus teaching and learning opportunities, with faculty being encouraged and supported to collaborate and co-supervise students, and students having opportunities to pursue courses offered at HKUST and HKUST(Guangzhou).
