T&L Quality Assurance and Quality Enhancement

Teaching Development Grants

The University's Teaching Development Grant (TDG) Scheme, supported by Teaching Development and Language Enhancement Grant allocated by the University Grants Committee, is intended to encourage the adoption of innovative approaches to teaching and the enrichment of the learning environment, and to support initiatives and activities with strategic and systemic impact on enhancing teaching and learning at the University.

The UGC’s Audit Report (2009) affirms that “TDGs are a major contributor to quality enhancement in teaching and learning at HKU. The University invests significant sums in addition to those received from the UGC – this clearly signals HKU’s commitment and encouragement to support improvements to curricula and teaching”. Information of completed TDG projects is available at: https://tl.hku.hk/staff/teaching-development-grants.

Staff members may submit TDG proposals any time during the academic year, which will normally be processed in three rounds. For details, please refer to the latest call circular.

TDG project holders are required to submit annual progress reports and a final report upon completion of the project.
