In this issue’s cover story, we interview some UM alumni, who share with us how their postgraduate studies at UM have benefited their career development (Video). With the rapid advancements in science and technology, more and more faculty members at UM are incorporating technology into classroom instruction. ‘Blended learning’ has created a whole new educational experience for students. But how do faculty members increase students’ level of engagement through the use of digital technologies (Video)? Chinese, Portuguese, and English are three core programmes at UM. What are the advantages of these programmes? How are they designed to ensure that they are student-centred and combine knowledge and practice?
We also interviewed Prof Tang Zikang, a world-renowned expert in the field of nano-optoelectronic materials (Video); Dr Agnes Lam, who spent the past decade redefining the origin of China’s modern newspaper industry (Video); and Tang Keng Pan, emeritus professor from the Department of Chinese Language and Literature (Video). Don’t miss this issue if you want to know their stories.
In our new ‘Community Service’ column, we interview Dr Brian Hall, who shares with us how he and his students try to address the mental health problems faced by minority groups in Macao.
