Personal profile

Biography

Adam does not like a “say no” attitude. In the 21st century, not wanting, or not knowing how to do something is never an excuse. If you don't know how to do something, learn - we are in the age of life-long learning! Someone else will more than likely be able to do it faster and better than you, but the knowledge you have gained will enable the end result to be much better, even if in the end you get someone to do that thing for you. If you don't want to do something, be careful. While in the past people could spend a lifetime sitting behind a desk doing a minimum of work, in today's world you can be easily found out.

☛ Adam supports all projects which lead to better teaching and learning. This is the key question that should be asked behind any new initiative. Does it lead to improved teaching and learning? If not, what is the purpose of the initiative?

☛ Adam started and is now part of the team creating the ELC Open Online Courses.

☛ Adam is leading the ELC's VR/AR Job interviews project.

☛ Adam is leading the PolyU team on the HKCPD Hub.
