This seminar aims to share the rewarding journey and observation of outstanding practice of innovation, interdisciplinary collaboration and teaching excellence in the University of Oxford in sustaining the culture of entrepreneurship. In late 2021, Vincent visited Oxford and conducted meetings with academia, professional staff and students from faculties and departments, in addition to his observations in one MSc programme. More specifically, the seminar would serve as a collegial platform for the discussion of relevant insights for the following three questions:

  1. Innovation:
    How ‘innovative ideas’ were transformed into ‘program development’ in the University of Oxford from the perspective of institutional culture?
  2. Interdisciplinary Collaboration:
    How ‘interdisciplinarity collaboration’ synergizes the University of Oxford with ‘icon of innovative and inter-disciplinary curriculum leadership’ and what might be the possible implications to HKU?
  3. Teaching Excellence:
    How the culture of teaching excellence be further promoted in the University of Oxford from the perspective of strategic leadership?

In this connection, the seminar is delivered to share the insights reflected and to provide a professional platform for further collegial discussion among colleagues. The target audiences of the seminar include fellow colleagues with strategic positions who might be interested in promoting innovation, inter-disciplinary collaboration and teaching excellence in their professional capacities. This seminar is also an extension of the Seminar ‘Internationalization and Curriculum Leadership via Teaching Exchange Fellowship Scheme: a Case Study in the University of Oxford’  to be delivered on 15 March 2022, during which how colleagues might apply for TEFS, promote internationalization or curriculum leadership would be discussed.
