We are delighted to announce that Dr Cai Xuanhui, Lecturer of the Department of Chinese Language and Literature, has received the Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award 2020 in recognition of her commitment and contributions to the teaching of Chinese language and literature.
Dr Cai is deeply honoured to receive the award. She said, “We teachers should treat our students like our own children. Our job is to serve as a stepping stone to help our students’ development, leading them the way for a bright future.”
Dr Cai shares her teaching philosophy. “I always apply different instructional strategies to promote deeper learning,” said Dr Cai. “When I teach the development of Chinese literature, I use literature as the starting point to encourage students to rethink social developments. Reading articles from different perspectives can also facilitate students’ understanding of the diversity of thoughts,” said Dr Cai. “Young people with broad knowledge base and positive attitude will adapt well in the ever changing world.”
The Vice-Chancellor’s Exemplary Teaching Award Scheme was launched in 1999 to give recognition to outstanding teachers. 22 teachers from 10 Departments and Teaching Units in the Faculty of Arts have received the Award to date.
