What our collaborators say
Pro-Vice-Chancellor / Vice-President Professor
Department of Statistics, CUHK
"EAC facilitates me to work with ELTU colleagues to nurture a learning outcome crucial to students’ future success: Capability to concisely and precisely communicate complicated statistics concepts to non-specialists."
Centre for Learning Enhancement And Research CUHK
"Language is a medium through which knowledge is acquired and skills developed. In a teaching context where English is used as a medium of learning, effective use of English as a learning tool is of prime importance. Through the ‘English across the Curriculum’ project, ELTU has provided students a good opportunity to promote their mastery of discipline knowledge and skills through enhancing their use of English. To make the project a success, ELTU needs the input of teachers in the use of English specific to their respective disciplines. Do sign up as collaborators of the project in order to help your students become competent users of English for academic purposes."
Lecturer Earth System Science Programme, CUHK
"Students could learn various English usage specifically in Science field and we believe that it is beneficial to our students. The cooperation with ETLU is a breakthrough and we look forward to more future development in English learning in Science."
University General Education, CUHK
"The successful collaboration between the EAC team and the General Education Foundation Programme has created a vibrant community of practice, which will create a community of curious learners."
School of Architecture, CUHK
"Language and communication skills are key components behind translating ideas into reality. Students, in their pursuit of knowledge, often forget that ‘how’ they communicate can be as important as ‘what’ they communicate. Over the last year the School of Architecture at CU has collaborated with the EAC Team to work on these very issues: Communication, Speech Delivery and Presentation Structure. The results have been of immense value to both the students who have improved their confidence and professors who have learnt important teaching skills. We would greatly encourage you to engage with the EAC project."
Undergraduate Studies in Business
Faculty of Business Administration CUHK
"Special thanks to the EAC team for working with the CUHK Business School on a series of workshops to hone our students’ presentation and communication skills, and prepare them for case competitions. Students found the workshops exhilarating, inspiring and fun!"
