Welcome Message

Dear Educators and Parents,

Welcome to the official website of the Annual Hotung Lecture (AHL) 2023.

The activities would be held on 8 July 2023 (Saturday). We are glad to have invited Professor LO Yuk Ming Dennis, SBS, JP; President, Hong Kong Academy of Sciences; Associate Dean (Research), Faculty of Medicine, CUHK; Chairman, Department of Chemical Pathology, CUHK; and Li Ka Shing Professor of Medicine to share with us his insights on nurturing gifted learners in his keynote speech "Big Dream, Big Impact". Meanwhile, local experts, scholars and educators will also be invited to share their valuable experience in nurturing gifted students to be future leaders.

The topic of the parent lecture is "Implications of Traditional Chinese Culture on Nurturing Gifted Children". Mr LO Wai Shing Vincent, MH, Chief Principal of Evangel College, would talk about how to apply the core and positive values of traditional Chinese culture on nurturing gifted children to achieve whole-person development. Besides, the teacher lecture “Affective Computing for Education" would be delivered by Dr LOR Kar Wing Edward, Associate Senior Director of Hong Kong Applied Science and Technology Research Institute. He would share practical teaching strategies through the integration of affective education and technological innovations.

The Hong Kong Academy for Gifted Education (HKAGE) commits to promoting the academic and whole-person development of gifted students so that their potential could be fully unleashed. Besides supporting gifted students, the HKAGE also actively provides relevant resources to educators and parents of the gifted to enhance their understanding of various strategies for nurturing gifted students and promoting their all-round development. Being one of the signature events of the HKAGE, the AHL provides a platform for school leaders, teachers, education professionals and parents to explore together and exchange their views on gifted education. Each year, a renowned scholar or education expert is invited to share his/her insights and supporting strategies for gifted students. We hope that this event would benefit different stakeholders in gifted education.

We sincerely look forward to your support and participation.

Thank you!

Dr WONG Kam Yiu Jimmy
