CITL Symposium 2020


At last CITL Symposium 2019 (January 2020), held under the theme “Promoting Student Engagement by Combining Online Learning with Classroom Instruction,” we discussed the effective combination of face-to-face classroom instruction and on-demand learning materials. The subsequent impact of COVID-19 has made the implementation of live-streamed online classes routine, expanded the scope of online teaching, and made us reconsider face-to-face instruction in the classroom. The momentum is now strong enough to reaffirm the value of campus life. This year’s symposium is expected to be a sequel to the last year’s symposium and will discuss the future and the transformation of university education.
