A variety of initiatives have been promoted in the Faculty of Science at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in these recent years to engage students in class with a view to enhancing their learning.  The experience on the implementation of two major initiatives will be shared in this talk.  The first involves the use of assessments as learning activities whereby students actively participate in the design of assessment criteria and be guided to critically assess their peers and themselves.  The second one encompasses the use of classroom response system to stimulate class interaction and improve the quality of group discussion in classes of non-small sizes.  The effectiveness of using group discussion to help students achieve higher-level learning will also be discussed.
