KE Project Featured in TVB Programme

Professor Connie Suk-han Ho

The University Grants Committee (UGC) recognizes that knowledge transfer (KT)/knowledge exchange (KE) has become an important mission of Hong Kong's higher education institutions. In order to increase public awareness of the good work that has been done by institutions in this area, the UGC commissioned TVB to produce a 30-minute programme in the form of a documentary, and selected a KT/KE project from each of the eight UGC-funded institutions to be featured in this programme.

The HKU KE project featured in the programme is "Support for Students with Reading and Writing Difficulties" (支援讀寫障礙學童), which is led by Professor Connie Suk-han Ho of the Faculty of Social Sciences.

The programme, "知識大轉移", was broadcast on TVB Jade on December 18, 2013. According to the UGC, this programme is positioned to be an introductory episode that provides the public with a layman understanding of KT/KE, and they hope that the public will have a better idea and appreciation of institutions' KT/KE efforts through this documentary.
