What is HKU TALIC Digital Solution?

In an era full of learning technologies, how could teachers respond to students’ needs for immersive personalized learning and engaging peer collaboration?
TALIC offers consultations and small-scale pilot development to help teachers implement digital learning solutions. Our consultation services focus on helping teachers identify their specific teaching needs and potential development, as well as providing suggestions for tailor-made e-learning solutions. Solutions could include AIs, virtual reality, cloud-based e-learning tools, and other digital elements that can help bring complex concepts to life and promote a deeper understanding of the subject matter.

  2. Assess the development needs and generate potential solution ideas during the meeting
  3. Perform a feasibility study by TALIC colleagues on the proposed solutions.
  4. Offer guidance to teachers on how to move forward with the development of digital solutions:
    a. Create templates or prototypes that teachers can easily modify and adapt.
    b. Assist teachers in preparing a teaching development grant or securing other funding sources for further development.
