Lingnan University awards staff members for their outstanding teaching and service performance

The Teaching Excellence and Outstanding Service Awards Presentation Ceremony 2017/18 was held on 8 November to honour dedicated staff members for their outstanding teaching and service performance.  The awards were presented under two schemes, namely the Teaching Excellence Awards Scheme and the Dr and Mrs James Tak Wu Awards for Outstanding Service (Staff Award).  Awards under both schemes were presented on a biennial basis.

 

The objective of the Teaching Excellence Awards Scheme is to recognise and reward academic colleagues who have demonstrated outstanding performance in teaching.  On the other hand, the Dr and Mrs James Tak Wu Awards for Outstanding Service (Staff Award) aims to recognise and reward staff members and students who have consistently demonstrated outstanding service to the University or community, particularly beyond the scope of their normal study or office duties.

In his address at the Ceremony, Vice-President Joshua MOK Ka-Ho pointed out that inspiring and transforming students is one of the core missions of the University. “I am sure the teaching excellence awardees are great teachers who do not only impart knowledge to students but also cultivate the inquiring minds and touch lives.  Many are mentors to their students, in academics as well as in life,” said Prof Mok.

 

He also expressed his appreciation to Ms Serene CHU who receives the outstanding service award.  Apart from being a dedicated long-serving staff member who has consistently demonstrated outstanding service to the University, Prof Mok praised that “her efforts in helping patients with rare skeletal disorders have inspired many to attest to the power of giving”.
