    1. Science: the heart of innovation and growth Hong Kong Baptist University Faculty of Science

    2. Science: the heart of innovation and growth

    3. Science: the heart of innovation and growth BSc (Hons) in Applied Biology Biotechnology BSc (Hons) in Applied Biology Environmental Science BSc (Hons) in Chemistry BSc (Hons) in Chemistry Environmental Studies BSc (Hons) in Computer Science BSc (Hons) in Computing Studies (Information Systems)

    4. Science: the heart of innovation and growth 10 Undergraduate Programmes BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Science BSc (Hons) in Applied and Computational Mathematics BSc (Hons) in Statistics and Operations Research BSc (Hons) in Physics Applied Physics BSc (Hons) in Physics Physics with Computer Science

    5. Science: the heart of innovation and growth 4 Taught Postgraduate Programmes MSc in Analytical Chemistry MSc in Environmental and Public Health Management MSc in Information Technology Management MSc in Operation Research and Business Statistics

    6. Science: the heart of innovation and growth Timetable Complete outcome-based teaching and learning for all 10 BSc programmes in three years Cover one-third of all subjects each year starting in the academic year 2008-2009 Cover all subjects by the end of the academic year 2010-2011 QAC provides added impetus

    7. Science: the heart of innovation and growth Process Specification of programme outcomes Specification of the outcomes for individual subjects Develop outcome matrix linking the two

    8. Science: the heart of innovation and growth Implementation Convert subject syllabi to outcome-based Adjust assessment weighting Work out resource implications Approval of changes at Faculty Board Delivery of subject Evaluation and submit report Submit to Faculty and Department First implementation report mandatory Subsequent reports optional Evaluation meetings held at departmental and faculty levels

    9. Science: the heart of innovation and growth Challenges/Obervations Classes often too large to enable outcomes to be achieved and assessed Reduction in examination weighting more diverse forms of assessment methods included, e.g. quizzes and tests, tutorial classes, laboratory sessions, mini projects and term papers more workload for both staff and students More resources required More labs and TAs More lab tests Not everything is observable or measurable Attitude outcomes are particularly hard to assess Paper exercise? What proportion of outcomes needs to be achieved to constitute a pass?

    10. Science: the heart of innovation and growth Useful Practices Ensure students are informed of the outcomes Go through the outcomes with students in the first lecture of the course Review the outcomes in the last lecture of the course Observe and monitor outcomes continuously and adjust teaching pace and strategy accordingly More labs/lab tests Smaller classes Staff-student consultation sessions

    11. Science: the heart of innovation and growth Useful Practices Incorporate outcomes in subject examination review form, correlating examination questions with outcomes Guest speakers practitioners Real-life case examples More class discussion opportunities

    12. Science: the heart of innovation and growth Way Forward Currently completed over one-third of all subjects On track to complete all subjects by 2010-2011 Expected to have converted most subjects by the end of 2009-2010 Postgraduate programmes Evaluation of programme outcomes Keeping up the momentum?
