Welcome Message


Dear Educators, Parents and Students,

Welcome to the official website of the Annual Hotung Lecture 2015.

The Annual Hotung Lecture is a significant event in the gifted education sector of Hong Kong. This year, The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education is honoured to have invited a well-known educational expert, Dr Sylvia RIMM, Director of Family Achievement Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A., to share her insights into Social-emotional Development of Gifted Learners with educational leaders, frontline teachers, parents and students at the annual event on 17 January 2015 (Saturday).

Dr RIMM speaks and publishes internationally on family and school approaches to guiding children towards achievement, reversing underachievement, and social and emotional issues related to giftedness and creativity. She is a dynamic and inspiring speaker who fascinates audiences of all ages and backgrounds by tailoring her educational talks to cater for the specific interests of audiences.

Following Dr RIMM's lecture, there will be a panel discussion session led by three local education practitioners to encapsulate the key points of the lecture for applying them to the context of Hong Kong.

This is a unique and valuable opportunity to directly learn from a world-class expert on a central topic in gifted education. Please register as soon as possible due to limited seating. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided.

We sincerely look forward to your support and participation.

Thank you!

Professor NG Tai Kai
Executive Director
The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education
